Tuesday 3rd July 2018
A baker’s dozen of the Squadron, including the welcome return of 147 ‘the green machine – aka Eric Read’ and the addition to the fleet (Walter Audley) initially suffered the now familiar fickle summer A rig breeze but finally, in the last two of the eight races, we were treated to the best tacking races of the year as the wind filled whilst totally changing its direction.
During this eventful evening DP gave an almost faultless display whilst John S befell a servo failure and David cleared the lake of crab lines – not to mention the occasional jelly-brake!
As this was the final event prior to the Nationals at Weechers Reservoir, Keighley this weekend (7/8 July) we wish good fortune to the travelling Fleetwood 95 Squadron.
