Racing 09/oct/2010

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Racing today was cancelled it was too windy.

A few people hung around to do some work on boats, then the wind died then Anton H and Dermot M went out on the Phantoms for a blast. A great sailing day was had, with some great fast reaching.

Congratulations to the ladies rowing team. They completed another sponsored row from Prehen to Culmore in difficult conditions.

Spotted this funny video about capsizing rs100’s

Very windy squally conditions dropped to nothing then picked up again. Many thanks to George G for OD duties and working the rescue boat. Very close racing between Gallaghers and Lynchs at the top of the fleet, just seconds in it on the second race.
