Stormy Saturday

The forecast of wild wind for the weekend may have been off putting but it didn’t stop the training course getting under way. Hopefully the heavy downpours during the morning didn’t dampen the trainees spirits or enthusiasm!

By the time racing started, the rain showers had passed through, but there was still a strong breeze to power the fleet of eight boats around the course. As the gusts and squalls passed through there were exciting reaches and various capsizes by all boats in the handicap fleet, as well as broaches in the F15 fleet. With JC as OD, many were surprised at the normality and quality of his courses. No doubt he will revert to his usual range of spinnaker free courses next time!

By winning both races, with Banter 2nd, Scumper leads the handicap series, and similarly Mike/Kayla lead the F15 series after adding two wins to their tally; Ian/Lezli-Ann and Tim/Ian each shared a 2nd and 3rd. After the first race Lezli-Ann did comment it was not a day for the ratchets not to be on – we assume she rectified this before the next race…
