Summer arrives

The last weekend in May saw Summer arrive at Warley Moor reservoir. Saturday saw 11 boats on the water for Young People and Beginner/Improver Sailing. Light winds meant no capsizes (not counting Harry H giving everyone a demo on how to capsize and right the boat just in case). Many thanks to all our helpers and instructors who helped with rigging, launching and giving advice. (Picture below from John Lamb)May29

Sunday saw 8 dinghies and 2 windsurfers afloat. A wind varying in direction and strength (5 to 9 knots) tested the skills of competitors – well done to race winners William Redman and Tim Holden. (Picture below from William Redman)May30

Great day’s sailing at the club

After the previous day’s downpour had the Saturday Sailing’s first get together running for cover, Sunday provided sunshine, no rain, a F3(ish) wind and a welcome rise in temperature. Ten dinghies took to the water along with seven windsurfers to enjoy what was agreed as the best day of the season so far. The full reservoir enabled long legs and steady winds – Warley Moor reservoir really is an excellent venue for a sailing club.
