Friday 11th August

There wasn’t any waiting around for wind today with a good force 3 gusting 5 blowing across the lake. With a bit of rain thrown in for good measure, some sailors opted to watch the racing from the shore.

Not a true southerly so the round the lake option was canned, but there was some good spinnaker legs, and tough beats, to contend with. There were various capsizes to keep the rescue crews busy.

Conditions were similar for the afternoon race grouped into Ladies, Junior and Over 60s for which there was a good turnout.

The 3rd prize giving was held in the clubhouse to avoid rain showers.
