Wednesday evening race

With no wind early this evening some sailors decided not to sail, for those 9 boats that did take to the water the wind picked up just enough to have a race.
Thanks to the Race Officer for a short but interesting course meant everybody finished in a reasonable time.
Sorry no pictures.

Wednesday evening race

Glorious sunshine but a typical Wednesday evening, light wind and even less as the race went on.

Another good turnout with 9 boats racing, it would be good to see even more.

You don’t have to race just come and get on the water for an hour or so.

Father’s Day race and ‘Tea On The Lawn’

Despite very light and variable wind for the 1st two Sunday races the wind picked up a little for our Father’s Day race.

‘Tea On The Lawn’ followed with scones, butter, jam and of course clotted cream.

It was a great success and would propose that we put it on the calendar for next year,  thanks to all that made it happen.

Today’s Sailing

Challenging conditions for sailing today with some strong gusts causing  plenty of capsizes.

A growing fleet of RS400’s dominated the day with 4 of them racing, good to see our younger members making the most of what DSC has to offer.
