North West Windsurfing Association Racing, 28th July 2019

In spite of an uninspiring forecast of light winds and heavy rain, six competitors turned up for the racing, Dave Martin, Mike Escreet, Geoff Ryan, Patrick Ashley, Daniel Perrin and Jackie Chambers. Four races were planned, but Patrick and Daniel had to depart early because of an unexpected domestic crisis. We needed all hands to get the safety boat out of the water, so we packed up after three races. This turned out to be fortuitous, as everyone got packed up just before the torrential rain arrived, having enjoyed mainly dry weather and steady, if rather light, wind during the racing.

The three races were closely contested, but Mike proved unbeatable, scoring three wins, with Dave M having to fight hard with Patrick to score three second places. Thanks to Mike Stemmer and John Lymer for turning out to help with safety boat and recording results.

Please make sure you secure the gate properly when leaving. Tia is organising a new post, hopefully soon!?

the gatepost on entry to the clubhouse carpark fell over today as I was opening the gate. Tia and I extended the chain so it can be locked round the pedestrian gate.

I thought autumn was supposed to be a sequence of sou-westerly gales sweeping across. Not been windsurfing for weeks! Is anyone else as fed up as me?

Just me today then? Heading up late morning

working at HLWAC tomorrow, so no sailing for me. Thursday is looking windy but far to cold and wet.:-(

Hoping to sail Tuesday if forecast holds. Bit cold though!?

Really enjoyed today's working party; it was a great opportunity to get to know other members while working with them. I love hard work; I could sit and watch it for hours!
