Dinghy racing

First Laser Training of the Year.

Good turnout for the Laser training. The wind wasn’t too cooperative, but a fun and useful couple of hours (with Duncan Skingley providing entertainment with his no-wind capsizing skills 😃).Many thanks to Keith Wilkins and Linda for running the session.

Strong Easterlies ….

It’s looking like with the forecast for tomorrow’s dinghy racing (Thursday) and Sundays, we are going to have to cancel.

Especially as it is going to be wind against tide !

So next race is going to be Thursday evening 29th April and then some race training on the Sunday 2nd.

If any one can help with safety boats on any of these days or for other races please contact me.

Great sail today, even some planing at times. A few early season ‘technical hitches’ through the fleet!

So here is the results for today’s warm-up race.
