Anton H – Laser 2 1608 2 1837

A windy evening, sailing in Culmore bay.some Good battles between the two boats. The toe straps on the club laser finally gave way resulting in Anton H doing a Jacques Cousteau exit from boat. The incident happened just near the finishing line in Race 2. Apparently the OD thought it was very funny.

A windy evening. F4. Course set at end of pier to Power station. Anton H should start in the right direction! (Did so in R2) Long fetch down to Fahan dodging the tide. Then reach to Fahan, jibe, reach to Conniborrow and beat back up to Power station then reach over to the finish line.

Richard F and Sister sailing well with the huge spinnaker on the Laser 2. Certainly a handful on an evening like tonight!

Anton H and Joy W sailing well in R2.
