16th June Summer Act 1

The sailing programme suggests it’s now summer however many will need convincing of this.

It was low water at 11.00 so little tide during all three races although the bonus of a flood tide in the later half of the racing making the beats a little shorter.

It was yet another week of three races with three different winners.

Team Custard (RS400) and Nick (Phantom) opened up a good lead in race one resulting in the two completing an additional lap and claiming first and second on corrected time

Race two, the same two led the fleet but this time it was Nick who emerged the winner with Paul (Solution) twenty seconds behind on corrected time in second.

Race three, everyone got to do four laps, Paul pacing himself well winning by over two minutes on corrected time with the ever consistent (when there’s some wind!) Nick in second just one second ahead of Richard, who had swapped his Vareo for a Club Laser.

Next week is the clubs main event of the year, the 75th Anniversary Beach Regatta, two days of sailing and both Phil and the BBC forecasting a great weekend of weather and sailing. Full details on the club website.

We will be joined by Phantom and RS Vareo sailors so it’s likely to be busy. There will be a meal at the club on Saturday night, please join us if you can.
