Is the summer weather slipping away from us? A drizzly start to the day, with a light wind wasn’t the most enticing combination of sailing conditions, but racing did get underway on time for those that chose to sail.
The Nairn Pursuit was held in the afternoon, and as the sun started to break through the clouds, the lead Mirror helmed by Graham Vials with son Sebastian crewing, sailed in to the sunset to win the trophy some minutes ahead of local brothers Sandy and Douglas Simpson, also in a Mirror. A stirling effort by AJ, crewed by Ginger Phil, in a GP secured 4th overall behind Chris and Chloe Parker in a Graduate.
The evening entertainment proved that Bass Has (up and coming) Talent with a wide range of acts by the junior contingent, expertly compered by Wendy Somerville.
