After the lunch break 3 more Footy skippers came and joined in the fun, Now with Graham Whitehead on the water Keith was no longer dominant. Jim Phillips was sailing his newly completed ICE and Rory sailing an ex Roger Stollery ICE but with only a “Just in” rig and a D rig to choose from was either over or under powered and paid the price.
Due to the differences in experience and boat performance it was decided that handicaps should be applied so the final positions, after 8 races were :- 1st Steve Hill, 2nd Frank Wood 3rd Keith Parrott, 4th Graham Whitehead, 5th Jim Phillips, 6th Rory. Steve Hill was presented with a set of 3 alcoholic miniatures and Frank a new set of Footy sails in the form of a pack of Tesco bin liners.
Thanks were expressed to Pat Cushing for acting as Race officer and keeping the scores.
The next and last Club Footy event for this year will be on Tuesday 20th September.
