Andy Lawrence is Club Champion!

Jim Blackburn

2017 CLSA Club Championship

 

The CLSA Club Championship, also known as the Hornich Championship was sailed on Memorial Day. Participants are the 2016 season champions of each fleet, or runner-up if the champion cannot sail. The format was to start in their own boat in the first race and rotate, round robin style into the next fleet boat for each race until competitors have sailed every boat. With five fleets represented, five races were sailed. Handicap scoring was not used.

 

The conditions were sunny day in mid-70s with a SW breeze of 10-15 mph, gusting to 20 mph. Andy Lawrence represented the Thistles, Jamey Carey the Highlanders, Mark Hardenbergh the MC Scows, Bob Rowland the Snipes and Bruce Kitchen the Flying Scots.

 

We have never had such a close series in recent times, as after race 4 it appeared we were heading for a five-way tie since all the finishes were in the same order with Highlander, Thistle, MC Scow, Flying Scot and Snipe finishing in that order no matter the skipper. But, in race 5 Andy Lawrence, sailing the Flying Scot edged out Bob Rowland sailing the MC Scow, preventing the contest from being a tie. So, Andy became our new Club Champion – again.

 

In the event of such a tie, The SIs provided a tie-breaker of best total elapsed time, which did not have to be used to crown our champion..
