Sail Chat- 2 June 2024

1436495 orig

Sun day at last and a very nice warm one, tee shirt stuff! But what is given, also is taken away, it was a spirited northerly so, up river, some of it was lost. All in all a sparkling sail with some nice reaches . Kevin (emollient as ever) and Trevor were the race team and Nicky with Maddie time-keeping. Out were Elize Topper, Claude Pico, Peter OTI and Elvin Comet, Jane and Sarah and me with Paul Enterprise.

In the afternoon the breeze had dropped and difficulties at the up river mark were compounded, but compensated opposite the club and Bell Hill. In the afternoon all classes started together, George, James and Peter (now solo) in Comets, Roger Laser (honorary visit), Claude Pico, John with Sue GP, Jane and Sarah and me with Colin Enterprise. Great start by Peter and Jane, disastrous start by the other Enterprise, who was over and was easily last off. It was a very tricky race with many place changes and exceedingly so from the willow tree up to the mark. The breeze had shifted slightly to the NW and so reaches became beats and the reverse. Paul had become official photographer so hopefully some interesting and embarrassing pics to come.

Nice healthy Tea from Amelia, the two pieces of cake award! Finally congratulation to the Commodore, Sophie and Oli for completing the Three Rivers Race on the Broads and a Safe Passage to Hywel and the various HSC crew members on the Scottish Isles Cruise.

Pirates Day next Saturday and normal sailing Sunday.

We attach a photo of our Commodore completing in the annual Three Rivers Challenge on the Norfolk Broads.
