Thursday evening- 19th May

A very pleasant Thursday evening sailing which proved popular with the singlehanders with two Lasers, two Europes, a Topper and there would have been two Contenders but Phil jumped ship opting to sail the club Solution. Phil & Lorna the sole representatives from the ‘two person’ fleet in their RS400.

And we’ve off!

Race 1 started in the last of the ebbing tide with a warmish F2. Dave, swapping Laser for a Europe led round windward mark closely followed by Phil & Lorna who promptly took the lead. Just behind Keith (Laser) led the rest of the closely bunched fleet. The race team sensibly shortened the race after the first lap as the wind had shifted from E to the SE.

Lining up for start two

The forecast was spot on with the wind strength as it picked up a little for race two. Phil and Lorna led the race to the finish with the Europe’s of Steve and Dave enjoying a race long tussle heading the rest of the fleet and taking first and second place on corrected time with Keith third and new member Harry, sailing his Topper just missing the podium finishing fourth.

Racing over, time to head home

Thanks to the race team who were kept busy but still managed time to take several photographs which are now on the club Flickr site.

Compliments to Chef Brown, the Moussaka and Lasangne were a welcome après-sailing treat.
