Biggest crowd we ever had to watch us sailing!
New boat went like a dream disregard the Phantom as a choice of singlehander at your peril a joy to sail up and down wind.

Clap Big smile nice cracking day post!

Oh no no they got a superb view of me sailing my new boat to perfection!!
Have to say lots of people out sailing really enjoyed the show, the noise of all those Rolls Royce etc aircraft engines was just fantastic.

We had a fair turnout for our RNLI race despite overcast skies and a return to winter wetsuits with the water temp exceeding the air temp encouraging a few to go for a swim mid gybe..

Cracking evening! Last night no expectancy of wind. Turned up at the club on a wonderful evening, threw 14 boats on the water expecting wind to die any moment....but it stayed in! The surrounding hills, the sunset, our little country pub, my brilliant friends. I sailed sh*t of course....but I am used to that!

Not exactly a cracking day, but I had my arse handed to me by that Laser again down the lake just as I thought I'd got everything dialled, that's what i like about sailing, however good you think you're becoming - you're not.

Damn near got overhauled by a Solo and a Streaker in one of those puffs that bring the whole fleet down while you're sitting in a hole with nothing... Don't you just love those moments?

We are running our 3 evening Solstice regatta and for once the first two days have not been blown off or so light you cant make over the tide, and whats more the sun has been out.Summer evening racing is just brilliant.
We have also had good turnouts with a separate trainee/ novices start and smaller course for them.
Just tonight to go fingers crossed the weather stays good.

"...an awesome event - the fleet all agreed the weekend gave us the best conditions we had encountered in years and the event was excellently run." Yep, Conditions as described. Brilliant sailing.
