Just finished Cadet nationals and promo worlds at WPNSA. Nationals was very windy due to the tail end of hurricane Bertha! –one day of racing was cancelled. Conditions were at times unbelievable - very very strong winds, waves and chilly. We think we sailed well but it was probably the strongest winds we have ever sailed in and capsizing was inevitable at some point on the race track. We love the wooden cadet although it holds a lot of water after a swim.
Promos were great conditions with a little less wind although still strong and lots of fun.
Hamish and I had some great results with three tops tens and loads of top starts all accelerated at the B for bang – all in our Rooster racing bibs!- 5th was our best and we were really chuffed with that!
Rooster Wet Socks
meant snug feet and kept out the Weymouth weather. The Supertherm Top
and Supertherm Long John
was toastie and let us carry on even after a number of dunkings!
Here is a picture after all dried off after racing, before curry!
Both really looking forward to the Inland Championships and squad qualifiers....news to come in September
