Fri 11th Aug

Friday is here already! The rain has kept a low profile, and the sun been in regular attendance, but it could all be set to change for the weekend. Wind is forecast to be building up throughout the day so there could be challenging, and exciting, conditions ahead…

The windy conditions were sailable, but they ensured the rescue crews were kept busy! The morning race had one determined young sailor sailing for almost 100 minutes!

The conditions did put off many of the usual contenders for the afternoon junior/seniors race, especially as the wasn’t relenting. Although there were numerous capsizes, there weren’t too many squalls to overpower the rescue crews, but the race was kept relatively short. Surprisingly, the day passed without any rain showers! The day’s racing was sponsored by AC Yacht and Boat Surveyors.

Another prize giving followed before some live music later in the evening.
