Young People’s Saturday Sailing – June 8

With gale force winds  and heavy rain forecast, it was very quiet last Saturday at Denholme where four adults were joined by Young People  Denis and Harry J. We were lucky when the wind died down from about force 6  to force 1-2 but it was extremely cold for June and at times very wet and of course what was left of the wind was very shifty.  Tony (one of our beginners from the Wednesday night Level 1 course) finally cracked gybing without capsizing – well done. Many thanks to Henry, Phil and John who looked after rescue and to Steve H who checked and found boats for everyone and to Phil who washed up whilst warming up after being on the safety boat. Hopefully we will have better weather next week and everyone will be back sailing.

Happy Sailing, Sue Lamb
