The finale of the winter series will be the Xmas pudding race on Sunday 10th December, everyone welcome sailing or not. There will be free mince pies and mulled wine after the race plus Christmas puddings for the race winners.
The winter series of races runs from 5th November to 10th December, if you wish to take part or casual sail you must be prepared to do a duty, you can sign up for this on dutyman.
Several people have already put their names forward but if we don’t have safety boat cover there will be no sailing.
It would be nice to see as many of you on the water before the weather gets too cold.
There was a good turnout for the Mirror race on Saturday, unfortunately the weather was against us, with winds gusting 30mph it was decided to cancel the race. We are hoping to reschedule the race in October.
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.
