|TRAFALGAR TROPHY SERIES 2016|
|A total of SIX rounds will be sailed, with SIX races being sailed EACH week, best FOUR rounds to count. The same model yacht must be sailed in each round.|
Five skippers turned out on a rather breezy Tuesday morning with overcast skies. A triangular course was decided using Mark 1 and the corner of the landing stage for the start line, heading to Mark 7 then heading back up the lake to Mark 3 down to Mark 1 for two laps finishing from Mark 1 to Mark 8 and the Lectern for the first 3 races.
There was a course change using the same course, but Mark 3 was replaced by Mark 2 due to yacht 86 having difficulty sailing up to Mark 3.
There were a few changes in finishing positions over the six races which certainly made for a good challenge, however prevailing winds allowed Brian Hartley to pinch first place with Dave Johnston and Roger Monks close behind.
Five skippers turned up to feel the Autumn chill and the usual unpredictable winds especially around Mark 5. We sailed a triangular course from the landing stage and Mark 1 to Mark 5, down to Mark 7 and back to Mark 1 finishing from Mark 1 to Mark 8 on the last lap
The day started well for Paul winning race 1 but went suddenly downhill from there. Brian was on good form winning the next four races. Roger was consistent by coming 2nd in the first five races before eventually winning the final race. Dave managed third place in the first four races but climbed up to second in the last. It was good to see Tony back in contention with his new drum winch and his saucy see-through patches.
