Overcast day 1/2 knots of breeze from the North East,, rain on and off,, frustrating it was and plenty, Alan the OOD opted for sailing on the South bank, first time there for many months. Because the breeze was so light and at times none at all we only did one lap , two beats and a run , we managed to get in 8 races and Gordon got off to a flyer winning the first two races. A win for Mick Ch in the next before Keith got into his lightwind stride with four straight bullets, and then the final race had Gordon just pipping Keith for the win, I am thinking that many of you will be asking about weed , and well you may ( light wind sailing on the South bank ) I think I shall speak for all skippers when I say it was apart from two incidents weed free , one was Gordon and one was me. Remarkable yes, Gotta thank all the guys who picked up a rake before racing and cleared a load from the East bank that would in time have gone back out in the lake at a slight wind change. Nuff said on that, except to say when you help out with a rake it is much apreciated. So Keith was the master of the light stuff today so well done to him, Stand out skipper was Gordon Bennett, with Alan Newman doing better than I have seen him do for a while.
Winter series start in October and for those of you who thought it was I.O.M’s next week , sorry it is DF 65’s dont ask why cos I dunno .
