Thwarted by a lack of wind

The Race Committee for Lymington Town Sailing Club Solent Circuit sponsored by Pennyfarthing Homes were forced to cancel race three of the series on Sunday 21st October, due to a complete lack of wind.

In a reverse of the previous weeks weather, competitors were greeted by a beautiful autumn morning with only zephyrs of breeze across the Solent. The race committee initially set a postponement to the start times and competitors gathered at the LTSC Club House to await the Race Officer’s decision. However, with a forecast showing no imminent prospect of a sailing breeze racing was cancelled for the day at 0900hrs.

Racing continues on Sunday 28th October. LTSC would like to thank all the event sponsors for their support including Pennyfarthing Homes, Caldwells Estate Agents, Grabau International Yacht Brokers, Ringwood Brewery, Lymington Yacht Haven, Harken and Sanders Sails.
