For the first time in the 2020 CSC Optimist Championships, the C Flag was raised, signaling sailors for a change of course in Race 6 due to a significant wind shift. Despite the shifty wind conditions, the Race Committee managed to secure 2 races, completing a total of 6 races for the Blue Group.
CSC’s Trevor Ng (SGP 788) managed to maintain his great form, scoring 2 more bullets to secure top spot in the blue group with 5 points after 1 discard. Silver Fleet top seed Gerard Tan (SGP 3464) placed a distant 2nd, totaling 13 points from 5 races. Nigel Tan (SGP 4693) completed the top 3 in the Blue Group on 20 points, just barely defending a late push by Simone Ng (SGP 786) in 4th place, whose 2nd & 4th place finish in yesterday’s races helped her climb up by 1 position.
An intimidating squall rushing through the course in the early afternoon made it a fairly short day for the sailors, with participants all back on shore before 3pm. Not long after, another bout of thunderstorm hit the club – thankfully with most sailors packed up and under shelter. We now look forward to the final day of racing for the Yellow Group; Good luck to all silver fleet competitors racing today!
