Harken Musto Skiff UK National Championship at Castle Cove Sailing Club - Day 2

by Dan Vincent 10 Aug 2018 20:34 BST 9-12 August 2018

Today started with the Musto fleet watching the Aeros going out in search of a Bounty, although in 25 knots it was no Picnic, and many got in a Twirl while trying to get a Boost downwind.

Anyway back on Topic, our Race Officer, who isn't at all Flake-y decided to keep the Musto fleet onshore as he thought you would have to be Fruit and Nuts to launch in those conditions and the forecast was much better After Eight.

In the end the wind did not moderate quickly enough, racing was cancelled and the fleet convened for an experts panel forum, led by Russ Clark ably assisted by Dan Trotter, Andy Tarboton, Bruce Keen and the aptly named Ben Schooling, who managed to share their pearls of wisdom with the grateful fleet and apparently the whole thing can be re-enjoyed on Facebook Live. The fleet has been split into Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets and everyone has been teamed up with Buddies in readiness for the next two days of racing, which promise to be EPIC.

Tonight the fleet has enjoyed a fish and chip supper and is now doing battle in a skittle competition.

Tomorrow the forecast looks promising and the fleet are primed to enjoy four races.
