Alice Trophy results > Alice Trophy 2021
Report & scores by Russ Chilcott
We had very strong SW winds which stayed with us all morning, occasionally it gusted and was over-powering the A rigs at times. The course was a long triangle/sausage with a gate at the leeward end and the finish line was up at the windward marker. The long course and sudden gusts plus the usual Apex wind shifts gave everyone lots of opportunities to gain, or in my case, loose plenty of places!
We had a 15 min coffee break, had to slightly over-run the 12pm finish time so everyone had done an equal number of RO duties but we did manage to miss any proper rain with only a light shower as we packed up. 14 races were completed with 6 of the 7 skippers winning at least 1 each.
“Mr Consistency” Richard Aucott as usual was always near the front end and with a score (after discards) of 17 points he won this round (Spring Series Rd1) plus the Alice Trophy. John took 2nd place on 20, with Scott 3rd on 22.
Congratulations to Richard.
