After a glorious morning the forecast came true! Rain greeted sailors as they arrived for the afternoon race, and the wind freshened from the South. T wasn’t going to be put off by all the malingerers(?) and went out in the Vago with Ginger Phil, and had considerable capsize practice in between some exhilarating legs.
Big E wasn’t to be outdone, and he followed suit (both sailingwise and capsizing). Rich Critch was a little nervous at going out with Kayla, but as sister Ruth was all dressed up and nowhere to go (William wasn’t rushing to go out), Bro and Sis took to the water, albeit that they only got to the end of the jetty before taking the main down and coming back ashore!
Of course, it wasn’t long before the winds eased and those that were left wondered what the fuss was about… Some may have thought it was the eye of the storm, whereas in fact it was the wind swinging to the SW and allowing Sale Fell to cast a shadow on the bay for a short while.
Tomorrow’s another day.
