Here are the results from yesterday.
Well done to Steve Byford from Birmingham for battling through the conditions and showing everyone else how its done, and well done to everyone else for getting through the lumpy conditions which developed on the day. Some good tight racing between the doubles for honours, with only 11 seconds separating 2nd and 4th.
Thanks to the timekeepers – Pippa, Johnny, Bruce and Ferg, and also thanks to everyone for paying.

The next and final race of the season is on Sunday 19th March.
I hope you all enjoyed the race today. A fantastic turnout for January, and much better conditions than was forecast. Thanks to the junior parents Howard and Jane who started the race today, and Bruce and Rob at the finish. Well done to the men’s MasC quad of Stuart, Adam, Rich and Jon for posting the fastest time today – over a minute up on Jules & Tabs on elapsed time, but were just 14s behind them after handicaps.
Can the 11 people who haven’t paid their £2 seat fee yet please do so by next weekend. We have names so know who you are!

Here are the results before and after ‘adjustment’

Thanks to the timekeepers
I hope everyone enjoyed the minihead today. Conditions were surprisingly good and we had the biggest turn out for at least several years with 14 crews. Thanks to all the timekeepers and for everyone helping get things going, particularly those who joined scratch crew or coxed.
Well done to the quad for being fastest on the water (and beating Jules for the first time?), though once handicapping was applied, Jules proved too quick for everyone else. Debs and Stuart did an impressive double race, having gone out early in the double before coming back to do it all again in different crews. Amazingly their self timing put them second on handicap!
Next Minihead is Saturday Dec 31st at 10am.
