When we went to Annandale on Friday we could have predicted that it was going to be challenging sailing given the picturesque hills around the Loch. We hadn't predicted quite how challenging.

There was enough wind on both days, with it getting quite gusty on Sunday.

The results were quite mixed, with four different race winners and a few U-flag disqualifications in the mix. Nevertheless we got in the full series of six good races, with Alex Cogan-Sivaragan claiming the top spot in the end, with some consistently good racing.

Ruaraidh Docherty sailed very well and was the first non development squad sailor in fourth. Morven Wood was first girl.

My brother beat me, and I ended up writing the report again having finished third.
