Monday 2 August

The midweek racing started today with just one afternoon race to give new arrivals an opportunity to travel and set up their boats.

Although often sailed around the lake, the westerly breeze would have ensured frustrations as the downdraughts from Sale Fell came down vertically and spread in all directions!

Sailing in the northern bay proved to be the best option as the wind increased to F2-3 with the help of a sea breeze.

Of course there were shifts, but nothing to what would have been at the southern end of the lake! To top it off the sun broke through for some mediterranean-esque sailing conditions and a cloudless evening.

After racing the pizza van had a regular stream of customers to please kids and sailors alike.
