Club Sailing

Six boats rigged to go sailing last Sunday in the latest two races of the Club`s winter series. Unfortunately Max and Harri found they hadn`t brought their life jackets so they didn`t actually make it onto the water! Three Ospreys and a Scorpion did however and they enjoyed two races in bright sunshine and a light variable northerly run by Jon. In the first Peter/Igor in the Scorpion picked the shifts on the first beat and reached the windward mark in the company of the faster Ospreys. They continued downwind and took the win on corrected time by some margin. In the Osprey battle the lead changed hands a couple of times but Jaime/Griff got the final beat right and they took second from Ted/Lucas.

The second race followed immediately. Jaime/Griff and Peter/Igor were marginally early at the start so had to bear off, then found they couldn`t cross the line because of the strong outgoing tide. Chaos ensued, avoided by Ted/Lucas, who took a significant lead, and the win on corrected time from Peter/Igor then Jaime/Griff. Fourth in both races were Alistair sailing in perfect harmony with his daughter Robyn. Well done to them.
