Saturday was wet and windless, though a light breeze did fill in, there was no enthusiasm to race, so racing was cancelled for the day.
Sunday morning’s attendees all reported wind at Bothel, Keswick, Cockermouth, but there was little sign of any at the club!… Read full article “Autumn Series 5 & 6”
It is with great sadness that we have learned that Ian MacPherson died peacefully this morning (17 October) after a long illness. Ian has been a long standing member of the club having sailed in the Laser and F15 fleets.
Our thoughts are with his wife and family at this sad time.… Read full article “Sad News”
A fair number of potential competitors turned up at the Club with the intention of racing but rapidly changed their minds when they saw what foul winds Bass’ micro-climate had delivered. These included Ian & Tim, Paul & Vicky and Hon treasurer to name but a few.… Read full article “Autumn Saturday Series”
A reasonably calm evening with a Westerly wind. Jenny chose 9-8-A and 12 boats lined up for the start. It had to happen in the final outing and we had an individual recall as Nigel & Glenys were ocs.
Mark’s 400 with Cameron as crew led after the short windward leg but the helm was keeping an eye on Matthew so he wasn’t really racing.… Read full article “Night Jar 17”

The forecast said Gusting 40. It wasn’t that extreme but heavy nevertheless. The OD said there would be a race if members wanted one but the trouble was that people could not make up their minds! Except a couple of newer members who were advised that launching was, perhaps, not a good idea.… Read full article “Night Jar 15”
A number of crews turned up at the Club hoping that Bass’s winds would be less extreme than around their homes. But conditions on the Lake were still marginal for racing. The Sailing Secretary who was the OD consulted all before deciding to cancel racing for the day.… Read full article “Stormy Sunday”
It was probably due to crews wanting to escape from Jon’s boat-moving work party but we got twelve enthusiastic entrants for Night Jar 14. And two were over enthusiastic going OCS and being recalled! Mind you, that didn’t stop them moving back to the front of the fleet by the second leg.… Read full article “Night Jar 14”
