Boat Yard 1 – Sunday 1st October 2017

this weeks winner
Dennis Willis looking pleased with his 1st place this week

So the winter boatyard series of matches kicked off this Sunday with 21 members turning out for the contest in somewhat wet and windy conditions  although I am sure we will see much worse over the next few month. (Such a cheerful thought!) Unfortunately at this time of year there is still quite a lot of boat traffic and this hampered the weights in many cases with swims being wiped out due to boat movement, but it was the same for all  and it is just a matter of smiling sweetly through gritted teeth! Dennis Willis drew peg 1 at the top of the crane basin and continued his winning form from last winter putting 10lb 8oz on the scales for 1st place. Dave Dearman had 60 skimmers from his peg at the bottom end of the crane to wrap up 2nd with 9lb 8oz and then switch basins to the left side of the Gate Basin to find Matt Rowntree weighing a level 9lb for third.
