A wind from the south-west started light but gusty, rising to fresh for the afternoon race. There was a swimming moment in the afternoon race for one of the Laser helms, who needed rescue from the boom.
It was a beautiful sunny Wednesday evening with the north-easterly breeze holding for the duration of the race. Many of the usual helms were notable for their absence, and missed an enjoyable sail. With just two more Wednesdays left, and discards making a difference, there’s everything to play for.
A sunny day with light and variable north/north westerly breeze that built to a nice fresh breeze after the second race had finished. There were eight starters for both races, but the second race saw a marked split of the front four from the rest of the fleet on the second lap.
Congratulations to Martin and Lynn Harland, who win the morning and afternoon series.
A sunny Sunday with light, variable and shifty wind. Well done to the Comet Trio of Lynn and Martin Harland sailed a ‘horizon’ job on the rest of the fleet, who suffered the ups and downs of the shifts, to take the lesser positions in both races.
The first of the Spring Series finally started on the 8th April with a light to moderate north westerly breeze. There was some confusion during the morning race so, for fairness, the results are calculated for the first two laps.
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.
