What a glorious day for a sail. The wind didn’t always rise to the occasion but when it did some boats were able to plane for a short while. Mike Moore suggested there were elements of skill and elements of luck – of course, his position only benefited through skill!
It was Lewis Tyson that took the honours on a personal handicap basis in the first race, from Jim Christie making a return to the lake but in a laser this time! In the afternoon, William and Elaine broke away (eventually – perhaps that was just the luck element kicking in for a change?!) and won from Mike Turner and Sue Watson.
With some consistent results by Mike Turner and Jim Christie, perhaps they are the ones to watch in this final series of the year
With the northerly airs, most people wrapped up and donned hats to keep warm (though William and Robbie D were still bearing a bit of leg despite the snow on Skiddaw!), though Elaine and Kayla were complaining of cold posteriors at the end of racing!
