Windy Easter Weekend!
Good Friday was spent at Ullswater YC with our RYA RS Feva Zone Squad coach, Dave Woodhead, and the class association North Squad with their coach, Dave Hivey. The wind blew and we went FAST! I mean really fast! I'm loving the new Supertherm Longjohn with the anti-flush silicone ankle rings. It's much thicker than the last one and I was super hot in it!
Saturday and Sunday were spent at Yorkshire Dales SC as Katie's brother and sister were racing their RS 200 there. We really enjoyed the sailing, real heavy weather stuff and thankfully we both kept warm. One capsize on Saturday, which was pretty good considering the wind strength. Sunday was pretty brutal and we were first to launch in the afternoon, watched by the RS200s who were all dithering on the shore. Went really well till a big capsize and the rudder came off . . . came back ashore smiling though! The boat was sailed back in by Ollie and Tom who must weigh 3 times what we do and they were hiking hard! We were very pleased with a large haul of Easter Eggs from the prize giving!Ellie Clark www.bubblefeva.com
