Thursday 24th May

It seemed that we had a change in season within a few hours as during the afternoon it was a warm sunny summers day, by the time we arrived at Gorleston for the evenings sailing it was overcast, raining and a noticeable drop in temperature making feel distinctly autumnal. This didn’t dissuade the hardy few who decided to venture out. Despite the conditions the actual sailing proved to be pretty good. There was just a hint of flood tide remaining, there was a moderate swell and a steady F2-3 NNW wind. In the first race Keith (Laser) and Richard (Laser) hit the line first and headed inshore with Tamsin (Laser) opting to go offshore followed by Phil &Lorna (400) and Chris (Laser). At the windward mark the first four were closely packed with Keith leading the pack. Phil & Lorna eventually took the lead and built a small lead crossing the line first but close behind were the Lasers led by Tamsin with Keith and Richard just a few seconds behind. In the second race Chris and Keith led the pack from the line. Keith gradually extended his lead crossing the line first followed by Phil & Lorna and Richard who crossed only one second apart.
