Saturdays Are Back!

The long awaited return of Saturday racing coincided with (what would have been) the start of Bass Week 2020! What fantastic sailing weather it was too – sun and a great wind.

In the strong fleet of eight GPs, Val/Ken took an early lead, and promptly capsized at a gybe mark! There woes did not end there because in the next race they had spinnaker problems (on the beat!) before retiring. Dave/Lynn went on to win both races but John/Jack were snapping at their heels, taking two 2nds.

In the handicap fleet, Mike realised the hard way that nipping in at the start pin is not the done thing when racing against Neil Currie, who has just joined in the Solo fleet. Having been forced out, Mike struggled to get moving again, and ended up giving the rest of the fleet a two minute start. Ant/Pen in a Vision made the most of the conditions to win the first race on handicap ahead of Rory in a Solo. Rory was runner up again in the next race, this time to Neil who presently leads the series.

Paul sailed a Pico in the slow handicap fleet winning both races from Mik in his Mirror.
