Queens Lake Sailing Club 5/2/05
The sixth heat of the Sprint Series was held in ideal conditions with all three short races keenly contested in the 10-12 knot Easterly breeze.
Once again the catamaran, Escape (Grant Bernasconi, sailing singlehanded) dominated the fleet of eighteen boats and won all three races on scratch.
However the smaller boats made the most of their more generous handicaps and relegated him to 9th on corrected time. Next fastest were Rumpus (John and Merridy Hudson) and Rockhopper (Ian and Kay Latham) with barely a coat of paint separating them at times.
(Was that a water fight or were they just bailing out some bilge water?)
Corrected times saw the handicapper, Spindoctor (Greg Marshall) win from Ratchet (Peter Lentz) and Seabiscuit (Wendy Lentz), with Rumpus, Rockhopper, Full Tilt, Aquatic Lady, Straight Shooter, Escape, Lightyear, Retromoth, Blackheart, Clewless, Just Moth and Queen of Hearts finishing in that order.
Each race saw the bulk of the fleet finish within three minutes with some boats only one second apart. Very trying for Bob Wagstaff and George Watt on the finishing boat but very exciting for the competitors.
The juniors had a good days sailing in these conditions, with Something (Paddy Holt) winning from Roaring 40's (Matt and James Weller) and Buzz (Tom Casimir). How long before these kids start pushing the seniors?
Next week is heat 8 of the Club Championship, and with Aquatic Lady heading South for the Laser State hampionships and the handicapper attending a grandson's birthday party the contest is wide open.
Better handicaps can be arranged in the usual way, sorry no cheques.

CH Junior Cricket
Under 14 CH Sportspower v Port Walters
This important one day game saw us playing the third placed Port side. Under clear sunny skies at Kendall and with a heavy dew on the ground the toss was vital and a good call by our captain Jamie allowed us to bat first. Jon Berry and Joel Elbourne took every advantage of the conditions to post a 47 run partnership in just 8 overs. Joh retired with a whirlwind 35 which included four big sixes while Joel made a steady 13. Chris Bateup and Andrew Lowe came together and kept the scoreboard ticking over with some good running and timely hitting and when Chris was out for a solid 15 the score had moved along nicely to 93 off 17 overs. Jamie King joinned Andrew and continued to pile on the runs until Andrew retired with an inventive scoop shot to bring up his 31. With time running out the slow ground meant that there was plenty of hectic running and although Jamie played on for a useful 16 and a mix up saw Brad Aldous run out, Chris Yewdall, Ray Newling and Daniel Brett were able to get us to 143 at the end of 25 overs.
This total was always going to be difficult for them to chase and became virtually impossible after the opening onslaught of our bowlers. Jon Berry and Chris Yewdall both troubled the batsmen with their pace, Jon hitting the stumps twice to have them reeling at 2 for 5 off 4 overs. When Brad Aldous and Simon Leader both claimed wickets in their opening overs to make the score 4 for 30 off 10 overs the game was all but in our grasp as long as we continued to bowl and field consistently. Ray Newling bowled a tight 5 overs of off spin without luck and Daniel Jackson bowled his best spell of the season. Although we didn't take another wicket the opposition were never really in the hunt, needing 10 an over from the last 10 overs and in the end only managing to make a total of 94.
This was a big win as it maintains our position at the top of the ladder, with next week's home game against the equal leaders likely to decide the venue for the final in March. Good luck!
Under 16 CH Raine & Horne v Port Lillee
Camden Haven elected to bat first and totalled 96 thanks mainly to Daniel Minns retiring with 41. Only two other batsmen into double figures Reece Webber and Jacob Easey. Port Lillee struggled in the run chase only managing 63 off the allotted 26 overs as our bowlers were fantastic. Dan Minns 2 for 7, Dwayne Minns 2 for 14, Cameron Smith 3 for 9, Keegan Raccani 2 for 6, and Pit the unluckiest 0 for 14. Good win guys, at home again next week for a 2 day game. See you at the nets, also time to bring in the chocolates and money sold or not. Thank you Karen Smith for scoring.

Last Tuesday billiards night saw the snooker balls come out. Captain Glen had only just left town when off comes one of the training wheels. The easy way out would be just to blame Colin Cooke but there are limitations as to how many times you can dunk the donkey. Col has always been in the first line of defence and also the role of fullback who else was there? Anyway the handicaps for billiards were in the cupboard - its just that we forgot to look for them. Major Final Tuesday saw Glen Ehsman take on the flying Theodora Wieggers - look out Glen - the lady's on fire. Minor Final GP heads them up in the prize money stakes no free burgers today folks. David Reay is as honest as they come. Trouble is easy come, easy go, bye David. Thursday night "Oh No" off comes the other wheel, what happened to the format for doubles? Out the bathroom window. Cooke was in control or was he. The lights were nearly out but "The Boss" held the night together brilliantly. "Hurry back Glen." In the Major Final Tibor is a walking talking snooker informant. No question too hard. His partner was Cooke, enough said. Thea is 1pt behind the leaders. Her offsider smooth Lenard is one of them but Tibor and Cooke were awesome. In the Minor Final they could have been Batman and Robin. "Pow." The GO man and the Poet took on Back Packer and "Who Reay." Kappow back to the bat cave "not likely said Don." New member Ken Torr got hit for minus 20 handicap, what sort of welcome is that? Have you seen your handicap, better drop down for a look, 6.30pm Tuesday and Thursdays. Two Balls.
