Spring Racing

Forty seven boats enjoyed an eventful day on Saturday 9 September. Along with the weekly Spring Series racing for the divisions, it was also the first Mini B regatta of the season.

Although the forecast earlier in the week for Saturday had been light to medium in strength, it was a different story on the day; a strong southerly gusting 25+ knots provided plenty of ammunition for boats to fly downwind and whilst reaching. As expected there was plenty of broaching as well.

Make sure you get down to the Club this Saturday for the next Spring and SIS Series race and the second Mini A regatta.
