  • Bank Holiday Pursuit Races

    Following last week’s successful relaunch of sailing today we held the first pursuit race of 2021. A good turnout again including a special welcome back for Mick Crehan sailing the challenger trimaran.After a still start at 10am, the Clywedog wind was back on form by the start of  race 1, first away the challenger, the 3 lasers followed by 3 fifteens . Ben Rolfe had a cracking start , no one was able to catch him, he crossed in first place, second to Keith R third to Stef F.  Andy Cook fell foul of the fickle winds but was able to demonstrate his dry capsize recovery skills.Second race after a short lunch was a slightly reduced field with some crew changes, the challenger, 2 lasers and 3 fifteens.  The laser’s held the battling fifteens off for nearly 30 mins and After the hour the fifteens were still in tight competition with Keith R and Elaine taking first, Ben and Jill Rolfe second and Stef F and Nick R third.  Great to see the fifteens with full crew on board (Spinnakers all round next time!!!)
