Saturday 30 July
Today’s the day the regatta starts, with the Jennings Challenge weekend series, sponsored by our main sponsors The Lakes Distillery. If the forecast holds, it could be a blowy start to the event, but it is Bassenthwaite, so almost anything could happen!
A light morning shower was blown away as the wind filled in resulting in some good winds, although shifty, for the afternoon racing. There was a good turnout of 140 boats for the first day, various capsizes, bumps, and gear failures, but hey that’s sailing!
Commodore’s reception will oil the wheels before the first disco of the week.
