Aldenham Laser Open Meeting

Published by at 12:29 pm under Laser's

3 Club Lasers flew the flag for TBYC again and  traveled to the lovely Aldenham Sailing Club on Sunday 10th June, We were greeted with sun, light wind and hand delivered coffee to the boats whilst rigging ( a thing i think we should take on one day !!) light and very shifty conditions made for some huge place changes up the beats which somehow we always managed to be on the wrong side of, as in race 2 i was leading lap 2 with Adam Smith  hard on my heels in 2nd but we still only managed to finish 4th and 9th respectively. This also was Glenn`s first lake event in his Laser and proved to be a bit of an eye opener for him, but he was always smiling after each race which is the main thing. After a lovely lunch followed by strawberries and cream we attempted to improve on the mornings results, alas that wasnt to be and the shifts got the better of us “salties” again, and the  overall end results were;
Rick Paxman 7th
Adam Smith 16th
Glenn Ratcliffe 20th
We have now attended three of the Thames Area Circuit so far this year and they are always great little clubs and great fun. We have all been asked numerous times at each Club as to when we are to be hosting an Open Meeting and thankfully i believe at long last it has been approved for next season. Plenty of time to get some practice in.
