2019 Saturday series Event 1

6th April 2019

The first event of our Saturday Series saw a great turnout of thirteen skippers, sadly there was little wind to begin with, and the A+ sail was the choice if you owned one. With what wind there was coming from the North meant we had to have a short beat across the end of the lake to start, to a difficult windward mark partly sheltered by the sand dunes, but once round that we were then away up the lake in better air.

As the afternoon progressed the wind picked up and it became a little easier to round, and with a slight course change here and there as conditions changed we were able to have some good racing, and a total of nine races were had.

It turned out to be a very close fight for the honours as Chris, John and Sue were only separated by a single point in the end, but it was Sue who took top spot from Chris, and with four bullets in her score was a well-deserved winner. Our next outing for the 65 is the start of our evening meetings on Thursday 18th April at 6.00 pm not 6.30pm as in the booklet! (because sunset is 8.18pm)
