Series Results for Ace Cup Series

Report on the Ace Cup Series


The Ace Cup series was completed on Easter Monday in light winds. The whole series was dominated by light winds but was well attended and some close racing was had by all. All six races were sailed with 2 discards being awarded.

In the Fast Handicap fleet Kevin Dutch had a successful Saturday with two first places in force 3 winds. John Holmes and John Dutch shared the two second places up for grabs, new member Robin Wilkinson sailing his first race in a cat recorded a creditable 4th in the first race. On Sunday Kevin had a so so day with the VERY light winds not too his taste recording a DNF and DNS! John Dutch showed he was the true master of the light winds with a first and a second, Joan Willis claimed the other first. This left any one of three possible outcomes for the final day with Kevin Dutch, Joan Willis and John Dutch all possible winners of the cup. The final day saw a change to the course with RO Martin Searle setting a double triangle course with a larger outer triangle and a smaller inner one. This produced some good racing which saw Steve Willis claim the first race from Kevin with John 3rd and Joan 4th. The last race saw Kevin holding off the challenge from John Holmes to claim first and the cup! John Dutch was 3rd and a poor last day showing by Joan saw her drop to 4th with Husband Steve piping her for 3rd by 1 point.

In the Slow Handicap fleet David Lincoln dominated the first day with 2 firsts from Martin Searle and Lyndsey Shefford. Martin was consistent with 2 seconds. It should be noted that both Martin and David sailed 3 laps in total (although only 2 counted for the slow fleet) and the cats also sailed 3 laps in the first race and on handicap both Martin and David beat the cats with David winning the first race overall and Martin the second! Onto the Sunday David Lincoln decided not to sail this day so Martin and Lyndsey were joined on the water by Peter Johnson took out David Lincolns' Solo, Billy Tipple in his Topaz and Graham Hadaway in the Byte. The two firsts were shared by Graham (Race 1) and Billy, Martin claimed a second in the first and 3rd in the second to take the overall lead from David Lincoln. This left a final day with Martin in the lead of the series but a good performance by David Lincoln would see him take the cup. Lyndsey Shefford was 3rd. The final day was to turn slightly controversial with Martin the race officer so he had a fixed point score of 8, David Lincoln was to miss the start which had already been delayed by 5 minutes by 16 minutes whilst helping Pat Fulcher setup his boats at his chalet, this meant that David Lincoln recorded a DNS for the first race. Lyndsey suffered a navigational failure and missed a mark to record a DNF, the only finisher was David Carter sailing an old laser which required some DIY prior to the second race. The second race was sailed with everyone starting correctly and David Carter sailed a blinder in his laser comining in close behind David Lincolns Fireball to claim the final first of the series, David L was 2nd and Lyndsey 3rd, who deserves a special commendation for sailing every race. David Lincolns DNS on the final day caused him to loose the cup and make Martin Searle win by 1 point.
