When I was a kid I was captivated by a Beken of Cowes book of photographs, one of which was a yacht travelling fast across San Francisco Bay. The important bit was the caption which of its time said, "Such a day as yachtsmen live for".

Well this was Weymouth Bay at its best and was totally apt for the wonderful sailing day the Ospreys enjoyed today.

Three races were scheduled starting at midday with sunshine and the wind building through the day from 12 to around 20 knots.

The wind was a little shifty but challenged the skills of all the racers. There were many place changes and a few capsizes, but everyone came ashore with a grin on their face.

The fleet is settling to the racing now and looking forward to three more similar races tomorrow.
