Zhik Moth Nationals Day 3 – Who ordered that much breeze?
Way back on Thursday, word in the boat park was that Saturday would be a peachy Mothing day with a nice force 4 in the bay. Pah! So much for 3 day weather forecasts. Today dawned a little breezier than forecast and then it built a bit. The sun was out though, so that was nice. Arnaud Psarofaghis lit up the scoreboard in the two races of the day (4 were scheduled but conditions dictated that we all think again). Jason Belben, Simon Payne and Richard Lovering shared the limelight thereafter with Pete Barton and Jason Russell, amongst others, putting in some nice performances. There was a fair amount of carnage spread around the course and the rescue boat crews deserve a big ‘hurrah’ for their help. So nice work all round to those who went out and no shame on those who preserved their boats and their dignities by resting ashore! Forecast is better for tomorrow – honest….
