The importance of writing down the course!

The wind was forecast from the south-west and medium to fresh this Sunday.  This wind took some time to set in, with a 11.30 start to allow the wind to set in.  Five boats started, but the slower, inexperienced, tail-ender boats started to sail the incorrect course.  They were put straight by the Safety boat, but the lead Optimist still left out an important mark and scored a DSQ.

The second race was sailed back-to-back with three takers and three finishers, although the slower boats only sailed two laps to the winner’s four.
