Start Race 1 of Day 1 of (20)21 series …………….. and by the way number 21 won (1) race 1 (ps despite arriving late at the line, hence not yet in the pic)

Well, we have at last reached normality – proper racing in a decent wind, decent weather and no weed. How good it is.

At briefing the wind wasn’t that promising, but it quickly filled in to become OK – and by the end a few gusts added a frisson of excitement. A course of 6/7,3,2,5,3,2,5,blues and a couple of decent coffee breaks gave us time for 9 good races.

It looks like it will be a close battle between 36 and 181 – but others are close in the mix. Mistakes will cost places. (as will approaching windward buoys on port!!!!!!!!).

And thanks to the Tuesday working party for spreading the wood chippings so neatly.
