Mesa Model Yacht Club’s annual 36/600 Fall Regatta was well attended and all had a good time.
In the morning under light winds, Dirk Brewer and Rob Shaw had a battle for first place and were tied by lunch time.
The afternoon started with a win in heat 7 by Rob but Dirk finished the regatta with 4 bullets to easily beat Rob by 12 points. Rob found the same hole in the wind 3 times as he watched the whole fleet pass him. Dirk had 6 wins to Rob’s 3 wins.
Another close contest was Don Lucas and Doug Martin for 3rd place with Don taking the honors by only 3 points, Matthew Edwards sailing in his first 36/600 regatta was in 3rd place by lunch time when he had to leave due to other commitments. Good job Matthew. Hope see you at our next regatta on December 23rd. The following are the top 5 finishers.
Dirk Brewer 15 points
Rob Shaw 23 points
Don Lucas 32 points
Doug Martin 35 points
Kirk Welker 39 points
Again thank you to all for helping setting up and cleaning up after the regatta. By the time the scores were added up all was put away.
