Icicles melt in the sunshine

Sunday weather was beautiful sunshine and a cold easterly wind.  On the clubhouse shore, the wind seemed to be force 2 – 3.  Towards the north shore, the wind was shifty and occasionally gusty.  The best tactic to take, going upwind, was to sail a touch freer and faster to give a chance to steer the boat through the shifts.  Ray Smith did the best job to take a lead on the water and win both races.  The RS200, of the Wrights, took a dip at the gybe at mark 2 in the second race.

Latest results are now to be found on the Results page under the Racing tab

Stay warm this Sunday!

Less hardy icicle competitors can take advantage of the heater in the Race Hut on Sunday. If you don’t like going slow in the forecast light winds, why not take out the safety boat and keep moving?

This weekend is your next opportunity to take your share in race duties. It’s possible that the even share through the series means doing more than one stint so please check the noticeboard and fill the gaps.

As always, no duties means no sailing!
