Club Sailing

It was too windy and murky for club sailing on Saturday, but the opposite on Tuesday evening when nine boats put to sea for the scheduled club race. The sun came out, the wind declined and it was a beautiful summers evening. Unfortunately the wind kept on declining. Those who launched early reached the race area, but the two club Lasers and Jo in her RS100 found too little wind to even reach the course! Four Ospreys, a Scorpion and a Comet did though, and the race was on. Carwyn, running the race set a small course and the six boats drifted slowly around it for one lap. Happily it was nearing high tide so its effect was minimal. Peter/Igor in the Scorpion gave a masterclass in light wind sailing, picking up the slightest zephyr and putting the faster Ospreys to shame. They were first around the course and won comfortably, from Ted/Lucas then Dianna/Mike. John in his Comet kept up well and took fourth with the other two Ospreys of Jaime/Eric and Dyfan/Steve bringing up the rear.  

Junior report. 

Another evening on shore due to the weather. However the opportunity was taken to catch up on the theory bits of the various stages. Hoping for better this week. 

Cruiser race 

This was also a victim of the weather.  Force 5-7 poor visibility meant the bar was far safer. 

Next race Sunday 11.15 am. Don’t forget the Round Caldey race on Sunday 25th.

We have now rearranged the race training day for sat July 1st,   9pm to 4.30. 

Those who booked a place on the previous cancelled day can have their entry carried forward.
