Sadly it was so windy on Sunday that only Mark White and the White Spirit crew actually battled around the course. And battled was the right phrase with big gusts up towards 30 knots giving them some fairly hairy moments. Well done to Ruff for also heading out and giving it a look, but we don’t blame you for coming straight back in as it was definitely a breezy old day and a low tide.
The good news is that this coming weekend we have the Final Fling Race starting from Batemans followed by Sunday lunch at the Colne Yacht Club on Sunday 6 October. Right now the forecast is for a light north easterly and with the start time of 10.30 and high tide at 13.39 it should be a lovely sail! Please don’t forget to book in if you wish to join the fleet for lunch – call 01205 302594.
