A slight delay in the completion of scoring this evening as scoring was interrupted by an assault from a dentist. Nevertheless, the results from the penultimate day of racing are now in and we've been rewarded with some jostling at the top.
Among the short wings, David Pickles (AY) repeated his first place performance from yesterday, leading the gaggle home with 103.96kph. That not only beat all others in the group by points but also 'off the stick'! Allan Barnes (S7) came second with 103.94kph and David Turner (RT) third with 99.48kph.
The long wings saw Bruce Taylor (QR) winning the day with a lead increasing 124.62kph. Brad Edwards (1B) turned in a better performance off the stick but once handicaps were applied, found himself 13pts behind for the day. Jacques Graells (K1) came third with 114.61kph.
In 18m/Open, that puts 1st, 2nd & 3rd within 260pts of each other, going into the final day. It would take quite a reversal of fortune to see Allan Barnes (S7) lose his lead in Club/Std/15 but messers Dickson (UKC) and Turner (RT) are only 28pts apart in the fight for 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
