A goodish, if somewhat variable wind. Coldish but warming up later. Weedish – enough for many skippers to have a strand or two to scupper their race. Still, it’s the end of May so not too bad a season and the series is scheduled to finish at the end of June. Better start getting those J class out of mothballs and remembering how to sail them!

9 skippers quickly became 7 as John M and Richard experienced malfunctions (well, their boats did!), but became 8 again as John S joined us for the last 4 races. Good to have him back on the water. An excellent start from Tom, was eclipsed by improvements from Graham and Oliver. Graham came out top overall in the end. Well done.
