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.
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.

A sunny day with and a little bit gusty saw a reasonable turn out despite there being no RS400’s on the water.
A few pictures below of the afternoon race.
With some strong gusts blowing several of us sailors decided not to take to the water today. For those that did had quite a challenging time.
Yet another good turn out for Wednesday evening with at least 12 boats on the water.
Unusually rather than the wind dropping it picked during the race which lead to some excitement and one or two capsizes.
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.
