Spring Series (Day 7)

A day for the brave (or foolhardy). A strong and fairly consistent ENE wind blew down the lake from left to right when seen from the club deck. Recorded at 27mph D rigs were the only suitable option to cope with the testing conditions. Five skippers turned up to compete as the Spring series draws toward its close. Sarah Norton (GBR 460) suffered battery issues before the first race and had to withdraw. (The battery issues were with her boat!). The remaining four in the fleet finished the course after much difficulty. A fairly short 'triangle / sausage' course took quite some time to complete. Race two was completed without incident but race three saw a collision between Sarah Norton (GBR 460

Spring Series (Day 6) 2018

Graham Waugh (GBR 476) and Richard Whittle (GBR 801) engaged in some useful match racing while the rest of the fleet were away. 8 races were sailed and the eventual scores could not have been closer with both skippers taking 4 bullets each and hence tying for overall 1st place.
