Another windy day…..Paul had only 1 OOD, so running a race for some 20+ boats was in doubt….where were the missing / no show OOd’s? Fortunately Bob was co-opted / volunteered and the race was able to run.
The course, 4p,9s,5p,2p,xs,8p,7p, gave some nice long beats and challenging runs. Young Ryan had a death role and a swim, but got his Byte up again and carried on. It was good to see young Andrew enjoying his first race in his Laser with David close by keeping an eye on him!
Karen, just returned from the Miracle champs, exhausted, crewed Nev in his Ent and really enjoyed it – a big difference from her Laser. Chris was out in his new Solo with a huge grin on his face – safe to say he’s pleased with his new purchase!!
Dave, fresh back from the Fastnet, was heard to say how good it was to be in a small boat again and be able to come ashore so quickly at the end of the race – he made a good start and finished 3rd – well done Dave. 1st Ian in his Supanova, 2nd Roland, with a radial sail, also back from a summer of ‘big boat’ sailing. Perhaps we all need to do some big boat sailing to improve our skills?!!
