Sunday Dinghy Racing – May 27

Sunny, warm and windy at the club on Sunday – what’s not to like. The windsurfers certainly thought so with several “blasting” up and down the reservoir at great speed. Several dinghy sailors also took to the water for three races in challenging conditions, ranging from lulls of 15 knots (not much of that) to gusts of 25 knots (quite a bit of that). Robin Boardman (Laser Full) proved the most consistent on the day, posting two firsts and a second place. The Sprint 15s of Steve Tunnacliffe, Dave Walker and Charles Watson, were also at the front of the fleet, as was Tim Hartley (Laser radial) until his top mast could take no more and snapped off (see Facebook). Mike Palmer (Supernova) enjoyed the conditions as did Brendan Briggs (Contender).
There are two Sundays left in the series (full results can be viewed here)- we look forward to seeing you there.
