Thursday 4 August 

The strong winds and rain have passed through but there’s still enough to exercise those muscles a bit more…

The rain held off for another day, and the winds kept sailors happy. Perhaps they were glad not to be going around the lake for the fourth day in a row?

On shore the RNLI were plying their wares as the afternoon pursuit race was in aid of the RNLI. Thomas Donald in a RS Tera led the pursuit from the start of the 100 minute race, only losing out in the final throes finishing a commendable 15th overall. The winner was Steve and Sarah Cockerill in a 2000 with Ben Pickering in a Blaze 2nd.

After racing we enjoyed the sight of Swallow and Amazon battling it out in a mini race between the Lawson brothers and crewed by two sailing doubles from the new film! Swallow took the honours on this occasion…
