DF65 Interclub Series R1, March 6, 2021, Springfield Lakes

Rnd1Sailors 1 Small8 March 2021
Well, the racing year is off to a flying start with the first of the inter-club series held at Springfield Lakes on Saturday, in what can only be called fairly good condition for our venue. The winds were reasonably good most of the day from the East to South East, with some variation in strength and direction, but that’s Springfield.
It was great to have a fleet of 20 boats on the lake again, a bit like old times, and hopefully a sign of the future. We were particularly pleased to not only have 7 skippers from PRYC but 2 from our new friends from Raby Bay, and with a volunteer from SLMM in Ian Gordon to make up the necessary 3 man club team. The rest of the fleet was from SLMM.
Rnd1Ron Pic 2As we have all come to realise, and John Heard made these remarks, these events only have success due to the willingness of the volunteers that help run the events. So, thanks to Ian Ashe for his RO duties today, he did a fine job. Thanks also to David Black for his tireless efforts in scoring the event with the assistance of Shelley Heard and Norm Gough calling the finish positions. Ian Geary  was manning the rescue Kayak and had a couple of calls for help, apart from altering the course marks prior to the start of the day. Also a big thank you to Ipswich City Council for supplying the portable toilet for the day and Marty Wallace for liaising with the council and playing a major part in this happening.
Mike Jefferys was in his usual good form, but as John Heard said in his closing remarks, the pack is improving and is after Mike. I am sure Mike will make it a tough as possible. There were 5 others that had wins, John Heard (2), Scott Rudd (2), Marty Wallace (3), John Daley (1) and Bob McKinnon (1). Well done guys.
First 3 positions: Mike Jefferys 28 points, Scott Rudd 60, Ian Robertson 72.
