Great North Asymmetric Challenge

After early morning showers 23 boats enjoyed sun and force 3/4 winds for the first day of the event

Generally the starts were clean and keen, with just one individual recall – shame that of all the boats that returned, the offending boat was not one of them!

Wind throughout the afternoon had its ups and downs, and swung from time to time leading to some one sided beats, but generally the conditions were good and challenging, enabling close racing.

Five races in, with some close racing, several capsizes, and tired sailors, and they’ll sleep well tonight!

Sunday’s weather remained dry, but with the breeze from the NE it was a little cooler. Unfortunately the wind was shifter too, but it didn’t stop progressing the final three races on time and getting them finished before lunch, after which there was a prize giving presented by the Commodore’s wife, Emma Smith.
