Friday 10 August 2018

Overnight showers have passed through but likely to continue throughout the day, but a good force 3 is forecast to keep the sailors happy. Just for a change the wind played tricks by blowing from the south instead of the forecast west, and then faded as the rain came back in. It seemed that the wind had settled to a southerly so after a 90 postponement a course was set, only for the westerly to kick in. Another rain shower killed the breeze for a while, then there was a brief squall that capsized a few boats. Quite a mix all in all.

By the 2nd race the rain had passed and the wind strengthened again- just the usual combination for the ladies, juniors and seniors race!

The third prize giving of the week will be held this evening before the live band keeps everyone entertained.
