Young People’s Saturday Sailing – June 1

On the day we should have been running our Youth Open Meeting at Halifax Sailing Club, we were having a quiet Saturday at Denholme.  We started with quite strong winds which took their first victim when John capsized with the Topaz.  John was on the Level 1 course back in May. Unfortunately the strong winds did not stay with us  and it dropped to about  force 1- 2. We did a couple of practice races with Denis, Laurie and Thomas in Topazes and Katie in a Topper.  And then we played with Daphne Duck.  We watched some very good confident  boat handling  and even Katie finally found the courage to stand up in the boat. It was nice to see Agata again remembering how to sail. Many thanks to Phil for safety  and for everyone for helping launch and retrieve the boats, especially the safety boat.

Happy Sailing and see you all next week.
