Thursday has started sunny and windless. Would the forecast wind come in for the morning’s Martini Challenge Trophy?!
And the answer was – eventually! By 1130 the wind direction had swung to the forecast SW, and soon after the OD went out to set a course.
The wind generally held, but the were significant shifts that were there to be taken advantage of, also some shadows of Sale Fell had boats wallowing temporarily.
The afternoon race was the RNLI Pursuit. The sea breeze strengthened the wind and led to some good racing. John and Alfie Telford in a Mirror, started first, held the lead and won overall.
With a hypnotist as the entertainment tonight, everyone is likely to be mesmerised!…
