Optimum Time Watches Phantom Southern and Eastern Travellers at Island Barn Sailing Club.

Icy roads & snow significantly reduced attendance at this popular joint Southern & Eastern Travellers event. However, three Phantoms  did start without initial mishap in a strong NE wind.

 

Halfway through race one   Richard Barker's escapade was soon over when his sail shredded in a prolonged heavy gust. After leading throughout John Oldham had to settle for 2nd on Steve's 57th birthday when he chose the wrong finish mark.  Steve who borrowed Ivan Walsh's famous Prawn Star for the event decided to call it a day as his icy mainsheet began slipping through frozen fingers. 

 

Incredibly, John went on to complete race two & three alone and take the overall win.  A genuine local hero !!  

 

Sincere thanks to Island Barn for cheerfully putting on this event which was run to their usual high standard in challenging conditions
