Soggy Sunday

It’s clear that we can’t have everything. The sun went, but the wind came back (in a fashion) accompanied by a little drizzle

Racing comprised the Asymmetric Cup and the Max Joule Memorial Trophy. The Asymmetric Cup is run using a windward leeward course and the OD realised that there was a need for a a medium to large sausage (Elaine and Dave couldn’t keep a straight face for some reason!) in the course. Again, Robbie D sailed well, this time with Ethan crewing, and won on handicap with Joan and Jack Hardie 2nd then William and Ruth (had Elaine hurt her back laughing too much?!) 3rd

The wind freshened slightly (at times) for the afternoon race, but rarely sufficiently for much planing to be done. Again the RS200s mastered the conditions to take 1st and 2nd. In the MJM series the fleet  were relatively close together, and it was Joe Watkins in his Byte that won with Mike Turner and Sue Watson in a GP 2nd

Over the weekend there was another training session that resulted in the 12 participants achieving RYA Youth level 1/2 certificates
