“The Chase” comes to HxSC…


…well, in the form of ad hoc pursuit racing. Five boats, a safety/OD craft and a windsurfer braved the glorious sunny weather and between them arranged two pursuit races.
With all present adhering to the latest Covid related conditions, experimental 1 hour and 30 minute pursuit races were held and thoroughly enjoyed by everybody returning to Sunday sailing at the club.

Even though the results did not count towards a series or get recorded, the competitive feeling between sailors was still there and hopefully, more boats will take advantage of a full reservoir for the remaining Sundays of the season.

Meanwhile, at the Denholme branch of Halifax SC, Saturday Sailors took to the water in a mixture of Toppers and RS Zests, looked after by Steve Davison in his inflatable safety boat.

As expected for the first time on the water in such a while, and in new boats, there were some capsizes with Katie managing one without getting wet!!. Thank you to club members and parents for their support. The fun resumes next Saturday, with the usual start time of 12.00
