Wed 9th Aug

A three race series sponsored by Ginger Boats with an early start and low winds proved challenging for the OD (and series sponsor). As the day went on the wind bedded in, though there were still plenty of shifts to gain or lose places!

The fast handicap fleet were prone to pushing the start and had two general recalls.

The sky’s the limit?

A late afternoon flypast from a chinook left some sailors feeling the power of its downdraught. We can’t be certain whether a subsdequent capsize was due to the downdraught or a lack of concentration due to the flypast!

The second prize giving of the week was held early evening, followed by live music till late.
