Bournemouth Digital Poole Week overall
A memorable day to end a memorable week Friday was a glorious day to bring the 74th Poole Week to a close. Even when the sun wasn't actually shining, the weather was still warm and bright, and there was enough wind for all the fleets to sail up to two races as scheduled. Posted on 3 Sep 2022

A different sort of same again The second half of Poole Week started with the wind pretty much as it had been for the first half: a shifty north-easterly that occasionally swung round to the south east and kept everyone on their toes. Posted on 1 Sep 2022

A real day of Snakes and Ladders It's hard to remember a day when the wind in Poole Harbour has been shiftier than it was on the Tuesday. During the racing, between 2pm and about 5pm when the fleets returned ashore, the wind was flicking between about 020 degrees and 130 degrees. Posted on 31 Aug 2022

Reading the wind, negotiating the tide, avoiding the mud For Poole Week competitors on Monday, it was all about getting on the right side of the wind shifts. There were a lot of them, and they were big. That and negotiating the tide, while some later in the day also had to think about keels and mud. Posted on 30 Aug 2022

Not a bad day on the water That was the consensus among competitors on coming ashore after the first day. The wind had blown - not very hard at times, but generally enough - and the sun had shone now and again as well. So it had been quite a satisfactory day, all things considered. Posted on 29 Aug 2022
