Just a quick reminder that the Autumn race series starts tomorrow, not much wind forecast but would be nice to see a good turnout.
Another good turn out this evening with 14 boats on the water 12 of them racing.
Unfortunately the weather was against us, the little wind that there was died by the start of the race. Ernest in his Laser managed to get well ahead of the rest of the fleet only for the Race Officer to give 3 blasts of the horn meaning the race was abandoned, with some thunder being heard he must have thought it prudent to get the boats of the water. Let’s hope for better conditions next time.
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.
Another great Durleigh Regatta. Not the best turnout we’ve had despite perfect weather. but those that did, enjoyed a day of music, food, sailing and games. Big thank you to the band and all those that worked their socks off to make it happen.
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.

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.
