Opening Day 2017 "Starkey Cup"

 17 Club Members attended our 2017/18 Opening Day Season BBQ and "Starkey Cup" memorial race.

The event was held at our Nicholson venue in nice warm conditions, with a N.E breeze of about 5kts. However by the start of the first race the wind backed S.E at about 20+kts (B rig country) and a a Willy Willy hit Dick Vollers Boat and ripped his Main nearly in half, from then on several boats had rig problems and Bobs new "Alternative" took on water and had to withdraw in the 1st race

A change down to B Rigs was the order of the day and the results were

A Division : IOM
1st David Meldrum Alternative 55
2nd Colin Johanson
3rd Peter Ellsmore Pikanto 77

B Division : All other classes
