8.30am Sunday Juniors
With blue skies and early light winds, we managed to entice 14 Juniors to this lesson. With winds from the west and sometimes a bit gusty around 12 knots, it was at times a bit of a challenge with a few people occasionally doing circles in the gusts (shouldn't let go of the steering right guys). The Laser crews had a lot of fun sailing out wide with Pat, Casey and Tianna in charge while the juniors had steering practice. Generally it all went well for a while but with the gusty conditions there were the inevitable capsizes right Tianna and Casey ?

Daniel in the Bic struggled in the conditions, which are the strongest he has ever sailed in and finally had to be towed home. Charlie reveled in the winds and just took off, while Jonah sailed the best I have ever seen him sail in conditions which are normally way above his weight capabilities, well done mate !
Dallas sailed well in the Laser, coming home first with Pat a good second and Casey third after struggling with the extra speed and light weight of my Laser, but again I take my hat off to her because despite many capsizes she still finished the course all be it very tired. Well done guys in very testing conditions.
