SAILING REPORT

Summer Twilight Series, Race 9 of 10
Gentle breeze, warm summers evening, flat waters - what more could one ask for for a Wednesday twilight race? Despite 5 of our regular sailors being at RCYC in preparation for the Mykonos Regatta we still managed a great turn out of 10 boats.

Seal Island Long Haul Race 1 of 2
From howling gales the weeks before to calm seas and gentle breeze. Wind forecast was for little to no wind which made a few sailors hesitate to enter the race to Seal Island. However with a little convincing we managed to get 6 out to race. The breeze picked up enough to get the fleet to Seal Island and back to enjoy a few afternoon drinks out on the deck .
