From the Ridiculous to the Sublime

After there being too much wind last weekend, today seems looks like it will be the opposite. There has been a slight breeze, but as the start time approaches, the wind has disappeared!…

It was to be the sea breeze that helped save the day. The first race in the celebrity glass pursuit that hadn’t been cancelled was actually sailed. Despite the light winds, the handicaps resulted in some close finishes. It was the lasers that stole the show led by Scumper.

The breeze settled slightly for the second race. Robbie D led the fleet (shame he didn’t have a crew). It took William and Elaine a lap to catch him, but he broke away again on the next beat. John and Janis couldn’t be shaken off either, and passed William on the final lap. We’re not certain whether John was being protective of his handicap but a dodgy tack on the final beat let William through to finish first. On handicap it was Scumper that finished first from Alan Nicholson and Julian Cruickshank
