Busy Weekend in the Sunshine

Ten boats attended Young People’s Saturday Sailing (YPSS) last Saturday, enjoying a Force 2/3 wind. Whilst some practised man overboard procedures, others improved their basic boat handling. The new jetty was tested after a wind change ‘upset’ several boats tied to it but it came through with flying colours. After tea break, there was racing and chasing of inflatables. Thanks to the Trevor safety crew and to Stuart Watson as OD.

Despite a dual header vs World Cup and Wimbledon there was a healthy turn-out for Sunday afternoon racing, as well as 4 training or leisure sailors and a couple of windsurfers, the latter especially hopeful! A wind forecast of 10 knots tempted four catamarans onto the water although conditions proved not to see them perform well on handicap. Adam North took the first race and Kevin Holmes the other two. Series results can be viewed here. Thanks go to Chris Holden and his son Ben as OD, and to Mike Palmer as Cox, with assistants Robin Boardman and Tony Burnett.
