Night Jar – 7 June

‘Winds will be cyclonic’ – and how!
A quieter, damp, evening resulted a smaller fleet of only 11 boats this week. As the wind came and went Race Officer Steve Sharpe had his work cut out guessing which direction it would materialise from next. In the event it appeared at all points of the compass at some time during the race. This allowed Steve the rare privellege of being able to set a course on which boats were able to fly spinnakers on all legs, as well as beat on most of them too.The wind finally kicked in with a decent planing gust, blowing straight down the lake, just as the lead boats were finishing. Joe Watkins, test driving an RS 300, was finally able to appreciate just how unstable they really are.
