The day started with a mirror like conditions which continued on through the cadets training up to lunch time. However, with the arrival of AJ, aka Mr Fixit, there were signs of ripples on the water around the northern end of the lake, far too many to be created by the 10(0?)s of people on the lakeside. The ripples soon filled the lake, with a strength probably twice that of the forecast.
All afternoon the sun shone, without finding a cloud to hide behind! For the first race the wind was in a generally consistent direction, not always steady of course, whereas the racing on the eastern side of the course became challenging with strange wind gusts from the east, south, and west!
