The forecast southerly struggled to come to fruition. Sale Fell seemed to dominate whatever breeze might be available as there were many shadows and the wind came and went from numerous directions.
A fleet of 18 boats made the most of the occasional flurries of wind in the first race, but the outlook was bleak and the race shortened after the second beat.
15 boats were prepared to have another race, and, fortunately, the southerly bedded in. The course was kept small just in case the wind faded again.
Bean/Oliver won the first race, and Zefer the second, while Mik sailed consistently to take two 2nds on handicap and currently leads the series
A few Bass sailors went to Ullswater YC for the 200 Northern tour. Usual fluky conditions on Saturday, very frustrating with the Commodore deciding to chuck his toys out of the pram and go home and watch the Grand national instead of doing race 3!
Sunday nice F3-4 and 4 races scheduled were sailed, even by the Commodore who finished as best Bass boat in 5th overall.
Meanwhile congratulations go to the new Mr and Mrs Hunt on their wedding. They popped to the club for some scenic photos for their memorable day
