Great sailing today for the another Hot Toddy hosted by George D. Our special thanks to him. A good breeze. Racing from the peir around Culmore Bay in a sort of zig zag course.Gareth and Richard sailing exceptionally well. George G also going very well today. The star mention has to go to Ciaran Moore sailing in the club laser and swiping a second place. Beginner? Huh! 🙂

Kevin T enjoyed his racing passing Anton H and Barry McN at Harts mark and giving them a cheerful greeting as he passed by. (I must remember to adjust his handicap for next year).

Many thanks to Liam for rescue and Ken, George and Peter F for OD duties.

After the sailing we adjourned to the castle and took to the Whiskey. The castle has the feel, furnishing, comfort and company of a Shebeen. I cannot think of a better place to drink Whiskey!

It was too windy today to race but a few brave souls decided to go for a quick whizz around.

Four boats were sitting on the shore three lasers and a Solo. A big gust came and all four went over, capsized on the beach.

Anton H thought rather than putting the boat back on the trolley he would just launch. A hasty departure from the shore ensued. So quick in fact that he had not got the centre board down or the tiller secured. Two capsizes later good order was re-established.

A great day of sailing followed for Anton H, Kevin T and George G. Many thanks to Bill J and Liam D for rescue cover.

Actually no racing today because there was no wind – the bay was like a mirror
