Thursday 8th August

With lighter winds forecast Thursday, sailors were pleased to be resting their muscles somewhat. Fortunately the rain showers stayed away, and the sun broke through for a glorious afternoon.

With the RNLI pursuit being held this afternoon, the local branch of the RNLI held a table top sale in support of their charity.

Generally there was a light breeze all day, with various lulls, and some big swings in direction. The changeable conditions continued through the prolonged start for the RNLI pursuit, perhaps to the benefit of the early starters. After the allotted 100 mins a Wanderer had a clear lead from two Mirrors and a GP. The crew promptly celebrated by jumping overboard!

The sunny weather was great for the children’s party games, which was followed by an evening of Bass has got talent as demonstrated by the stars of our GP fleet!
