Sunshine and sea breezes

The high pressure system bringing the clear sunny May bank holiday also brought light and variable winds for the Sunday’s racing.  The morning race started with a zephyr from the north west, but it never developed and settled.  The race was shortened fractionally at 1 lap and the changing wind filled from a different direction and turned the race order on it’s head.  The wind filled in nicely during the lunch break, forcing a new course to be set.  There were four takers for the PM race, and the first two laps were sailed in reasonable time.  The third and final lap was finished in a more fitful wind, but the order was not affected.
