Weekend Series

The lake was surprisingly calmer than forecast on Saturday, though started off a little drizzly, so there were a few takers for the start of the weekend series. The wind and gusts did pick up a little over the course

Just the Job

In contrast to last weekend’s sunny windy weather, Saturday was overcast with a lack of wind. There had been a good turnout for the morning training session, but fewer numbers for the afternoon race. Those that were there were keen

Whit Bank Holiday

Saturday was sunny, warm, but blustery and only a few hardy sailors were planning to sail (or was that swim in Alastair’s case?). However, within 15 mins of the start time the wind suddenly eased as it fought with itself

Royal Wedding Weekend

It wasn’t only the Windsor wedding that enjoyed wall to wall sunshine on Saturday. Though the wind was patchy over lunch, the sea breeze came in and built up throughout the afternoon. Mike/Kayla continued with their cover tacking over Ian/Lezli-Ann
