It has been quite daunting moving from the Regatta fleet last year to Senior Main in one move, there are some really good sailors out there! Well done to Sam, getting a 28th position.
We travelled down to Hayling Friday night, family, Puffin rib and 2 Optimists. We stopped at the North Sail Loft to collect my V4 sail. Thank you Tim for your time.
Saturday arrived with cool conditions and slightly damp in the morning, followed by a building breeze which led to some interesting and fun sailing. Sunday was breezy, I like the windier conditions. The sunshine over the weekend was a real welcome treat and the Saturday night BBQ was really great.
I found the tide really hard to cope with, especially around the windward mark, I am sure they put it right in the middle of the strongest bit of tide. I was also struggling with my old hiking shorts and took them off in the end, sore leg muscles Monday (no PE for me hopefully)! I am going to try the Rooster Race Armour Shorts
with the 185 Pro Hiking Pads
Hopefully see you at Hollowell on the 4th and 5th July.
