LASER GRAND PRIX – PENULTIMATE ROUND – CONISTON SC – SEPT 25TH

Sam Sancar (W) Capt

Sam Gunning (E ) Vice Capt

Jan Theymann – (SH)

Oliver Sayer (SH)

Another very light wind start to the regatta with race 1 being so light that some people just retired as the race officer was not prepared to abandon the race! It brought Sam Sancar his best result of the day with 2nd in the Radial rig fleet. The wind came in for a decent 2nd race before lunch and then there was a respectable wind for the 2 afternoon races.

This was Jan Fredrik Theyman’s first outing for the school sailing a full size rig and he did well in a competitive fleet ending up as first youth in that fleet with Oliver Sayer being 2nd youth in the full size fleet. Meanwhile the more experienced Sam and Sam both trying to improve their overall standing in the series managed to be 2nd and 3rd youth in the Radial fleet which has many more youths in it

Overall a frustratingly light wind start that could only improve… and it did! Next week sees the series conclusion at Ullswater where we hope for some better winds.
