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!!!)

Thanks to all who turned out and look forward to seeing you on the water next week.
I am away next weekend weather permitting but contact Paul   (paulfeely organising  or Stef ([email protected]) if you want something similar next  Sunday May 9th.  Keith R
