North West Windsurfing Association Racing, 28th July 2019
In spite of an uninspiring forecast of light winds and heavy rain, six competitors turned up for the racing, Dave Martin, Mike Escreet, Geoff Ryan, Patrick Ashley, Daniel Perrin and Jackie Chambers. Four races were planned, but Patrick and Daniel had to depart early because of an unexpected domestic crisis. We needed all hands to get the safety boat out of the water, so we packed up after three races. This turned out to be fortuitous, as everyone got packed up just before the torrential rain arrived, having enjoyed mainly dry weather and steady, if rather light, wind during the racing.
The three races were closely contested, but Mike proved unbeatable, scoring three wins, with Dave M having to fight hard with Patrick to score three second places. Thanks to Mike Stemmer and John Lymer for turning out to help with safety boat and recording results.
