Act Six of the Extreme Footy Series saw us take on a course at the picturesque Hollowell Sailing club, the wind obligingly blew lightly down the lake, which once again sent us scurrying for our "Justin" Rigs. Peter Jackson and Peter Shepherd metaphorically traded blows at the front of the fleet, with the occasional intervention by Geoff Raygada. A tough battle ensued between Geoff, Sid Sims, Norman Hardy, Tim Leese and Derek Lane, indeed it was good to see so many regular Abington park skippers join in the Footy fleet at this event. Once again the final placing came down to the ever popular jeapody of the double points round. with PJ securing victory, Goeff moving away from the pack and Norman putting himself into equal place with Sid who just clinched fourth place by virtue of his thrid place finishes.
A bit of a break now through August for the Footy with the next Event being ACT 7 of the XFS which is September 3rd, 2016 at Birmingham Model Yacht Club.
