8.30 Sunday Juniors ;
With the weather heating up including the water temperature its getting more comfortable in and on the water and with a healthy group of 15 blue and green armband sailors keen to hit the water we set up a reaching course out from the club .
As usual the winds were from the n/w early which always creates a challenge as the wind speed increased and the gusts became a bit nasty but all in all everyone sailed well even if their was the occassional capsize and the odd crashing into another boat . Caiden sailed well in the bic after a few tips from Charlie and me which unlike some people he actually listened too hence less capsizes .
10.30 Sunday Juniors ;
By the time we hit the water for this session the wind had turned n/n/e around 10/12 knots with the odd gust . Abbey chose to sail a tera rather than her laser and she just flew around the course tacking and gybing as did Addy who being the smallest totally impressed a few of the 8.30 dads with her ability to sail the conditions especially being the smallest in the group . Even Kaleb went well especially after a few tips from Ollie about sitting on the side and finally Ollie who just continues to improve each week with some great general sailing.
Open Racing ;
By 12.30 the winds had settled into the n/e and increased to around 15 / 18 knots making all the adults either go radial or 4.7. Peter set a course starting at runners and comprised two laps to the middle of ephriam on the soverign side and then two laps to below soverign then a long work to the finish at the club pontoon . The stand out sailor of the day was Charlie who after his usual blinder start chased Tom around the course and was totally untouchable by the following fleet . Kate and Roger said try as they might they just couldnt catch him ! Casey had a day to forget as she just couldnt come to grips with the conditions and Brendan had a leaky boat so he had to pull out after downwind capsizes .
Canteen , a few of the mums are off to our Coffee supplier on thursday to do a barista course so good luck everyone .
Public Nuisance is at the boat yard getting a face lift thanks to Andrew who organised it and Dallas , Charlie , Pete , Rob and Roger for helping to tow her up and for repairing and sanding and sanding and sanding her hull prior to a rap being put on her , should look awesome .
