If Father Christmas was hoping to have a day off this weekend due to the extreme conditions forecasted, then he was to be disappointed.

A little like burglars, Port Dinorwic's Race Management team spotted a window of opportunity open in the weather forecast on Saturday and held two back-to-back races in good fast conditions.

There were one or two capsizes but most coped in exhilarating conditions, which over lunch deteriorated requiring an early finish to racing, followed by prize-giving by the man in a red suit. For about the fifth year running that Race Officer Ken went missing just as Father Christmas appeared, shame.
