Sunday’s Wet and Windy Racing

Sunday’s weather was a big disappointment after the Saturday sunshine. Showers and a rising wind, stared in the east, and swung south-easterly during the morning. The irregular and shifty gusts did not allow any relaxation and enjoyment during the 5 lap race sailed by the sole finisher. The RS400, sailed by Richard Bonner and Paul Rochford, capsized half way through lap 3 and spent the remainder of their session trying to right, and maintain the mast vertical. Nick Tasker suffered a capsize on lap 4, and, while righting the boat without outside assistance, needed the boat held steady, by the safety boat, in order to climb aboard. There were no takers for a PM race.
The first of the Wednesday evening races was sailed on the 15th April.
