Report – Laser Open at Bowmoor Sailing Club

Summer arrived on Sunday, but the weather arrived on Saturday. Gorgeous sunshine and unfortunately, very little wind.

After a short delay and an early lunch the wind finally put in an appearance and gradually filled in over the afternoon. Race Officer, Bowmoor Commodore Tom Whittingham and his team had to work hard on the courses, but managed to give the sailors 3 close races.

From the off, form re-established itself. Many times winner John Ling narrowly beat last years winner Neil Crosby to the finish. In the second race this order was reversed leaving both sailors tied on a 1st and a 2nd, with the final race to decide the outcome. While some were anticipating a tight match race, Ling found the front of the fleet at the start, while uncharacteristically Crosby got caught in the middle of a large group. Extending his lead throughout John finished comfortably in fourth place to win the event. Neil could consider himself unfortunate to come second counting a first and a second.
