Rain, Rain Go Away

Perhaps due to a wet and windy forecast, there weren’t a lot of eager participants for the weekend championship series so the OD cancelled the racing on Saturday.

Though forecast to be stronger on Sunday, several sailors turned up, looked at the conditions, and four opted to race, two GPs, a Vareo and a F15. The conditions were sailable, despite occasional squalls to contend with, and some short, sharp showers. After two laps Val/Ken called it a day and retired, but Dave/Lynn had to sail on another couple of laps before the course was shortened. In the handicap fleet, Hugh in the Vareo finished ahead of John/Steve in the F15, so won on handicap too.

After a lunch break, the heavy rain showers put off the sailors from heading out again, so racing was cancelled for the day
