Another good turn out this evening with 14 boats on the water 12 of them racing.
Unfortunately the weather was against us, the little wind that there was died by the start of the race. Ernest in his Laser managed to get well ahead of the rest of the fleet only for the Race Officer to give 3 blasts of the horn meaning the race was abandoned, with some thunder being heard he must have thought it prudent to get the boats of the water. Let’s hope for better conditions next time.
With no wind early this evening some sailors decided not to sail, for those 9 boats that did take to the water the wind picked up just enough to have a race.
Thanks to the Race Officer for a short but interesting course meant everybody finished in a reasonable time.
Sorry no pictures.
Another great Durleigh Regatta. Not the best turnout we’ve had despite perfect weather. but those that did, enjoyed a day of music, food, sailing and games. Big thank you to the band and all those that worked their socks off to make it happen.

Unusually rather than the wind dropping it picked during the race which lead to some excitement and one or two capsizes.
