Wednesday morning racing continues on 3/4/19 with the first in the Spring Series starting at 11am
A very calm sunny day, with 9 local sailors and a very welcome visitor from Abersoch, Tim. A long course was set, due to the very light wind it was restricted to 1 lap.
Under the watchful eye of our OD Ernie, 8 races were held, John was not allowed to have his own way with 5 different skippers managing to win races.

Next Week (27/3/19) will be the last of the DF65 Winter Series as Race 13.
7 sailors turned out this week with a light S to SSE breeze which came and went from 2 to 10 knots. Rain stopped play for 5 minutes in the middle of racing when a few unprepared sailors donned waterproofs and transmitter covers before resuming. A good length course and 2 lap races meant that there was time to regain lost ground (and lose a good position as well!). Only 7 races were held due to the stoppage and length of each race.
