Night Jar 1

A light westerly breeze with regular shifts coming round Sale Fell greeted the 17 boats, including 5 Teras, who turned out for the first Night Jar of the Thursday evening series.

So keen was Ant to get started in his new role that he forgot to take a Race Officer with him (sorry Robin) but with the able assistance of Pen and moral support from Sid, racing started on time despite worries from shore that there might be an early start.

Val and Ken were first to show on a quadrilateral course and proceeded to set the pace for the first 2 laps, closely pursued by James and Jenny and Alex Reed in a Laser (ICLA7) with Neil and Rory regularly swapping places. A large wind shift on the 3rd lap allowed Alex through to lead on the water and converted the beat into a fetch, turning the last lap into a procession. It was good to see the Teras out in force clearly benefitting from their winter coaching and next week Val has promised meat pies!
