Laser Lakeland and Borders Grand Prix at Annandale Sailing Club

Laser Lakeland and Borders Grand Prix at Annandale © M.Ripley

Annandale welcomed us with a good wind coupled with occasional sun, even if the wind came with massive gusts with big wind shifts that flattened more than a few of the fleet.

By the end of the first race all were happy to take a break and regain some energy from excellent home made soup and rolls from the galley staff at the club.

Several sailors went for a smaller rig for race 2 and 3 - whilst still strong and gusty not as wild as race 1. Chris Nurney set a long beat and fast reaches for race 2, and an extra beat in race 3 which saw the race leaders having a very close battle all the way to the line.

A hard day's sailing saw tired but satisfied faces at the prize giving.

Sailors came from 8 different clubs which, for 15 sailors, is a good spread. Jon Abbatt is the current series leader.

Mark layers and safety boat team did a great job with plenty of capsizes and changes of courses to deal with.
