Race Results 20th May 2018

A perfect day for sailing and our first recorded race for some time.  Wind steady force 2-3 sw.  The course was set and remarkably the wind was as predicted!  Six  boats from the club started the race and we were pleased to be joined by the Raquero and the Optimist from Party Levante.  It was great to see everyone joining in the racing and a perfect introduction to racing for some of our new members, especially those new to sailing!  The important part about today was the taking part and the experience and enjoyment.  Sailing around the buoys is an excellent way to improve sailing skills and I feel I learn a little more every time I do it.   I’m sure the Wayfarer sailors and the Express all enjoyed a bit of fun as they all sailed in close proximity.  So thanks to everyone for joining in and making today a great success.

I’d also like to thank our safety boat crew led by Andy who did a great job of managing the race starts finishes and time recording.  Special thanks to Barrie Deakin who arrived at the club for the first time today and was out on the safety boat in his first half hour with us!  An excellent and memorable day, race results below:
