A "lazy" wind

("Goes straight through you.") That's what greeted us on Sunday 14 Apr: a brisk E/SE breeze (all the way from Siberia), and the sky soon clouded over to give a chilly feel. No complaints, though: the wind was enough to keep us going fairly well through the morning race, without many capsizes. Occasional shifts, but within the normal range. After lunch, we seemed to be set for more of the same, but the breeze gradually faded, and a few holes developed.

We finally got our pursuit series up and running, though, even if the number of boats was less than impressive.

The honours for the three races were spread around, with James, Paul and Mike winning in that order.

Easter next weekend

The Easter weekend keeps to the same pattern of racing: still the usual three races on Sunday, as well as the one on Friday evening. Here's the link to the schedule.
