Race 9+10 11/08/18 and races 11 and 12 15/09/18
No racing on the 11th Aug and we were becalmed on the 15/09/18. We waited on the slipway for the wind to come for about an hour. Eventually we gave up. By the time I got home to Prehen there was a fine breeze! The joy of sailing!

So the final results for Series F are Ken and Davy L in first place, Bill J/Joe McC in second and James P H/Alan T in third. Well sailed!

Race 7+8 04/08/18

Race 5+6
No racing today

Race 3+4 Sat 21/07/18
Racing in town today for the clipper event. A good sail into town in a steady F3. We passed a large group of swimmers as they left fro Gillilands slipway. They swam into the pontoons – sturdy stuff. Ken L and Davy L must have been inspired because they decided to go for a swim as well up near the old fuel depot in town. They quickly went off they idea and got back in the boat. We all gathered in town and the races were started from a rescue boat. The race course was up to a mark near the peace bridge, back down leaving the city centre nav mark to port and around the pin end mark on the start line X2. Good racing with large crowds on the quay. A spinnaker run the whole way back to Culmore. Many thanks to the Loughs Agency for organizing the event and to the rescue boats and OD for their time and efforts. Aidan O D going very well in his Laser. James P H and Alan T also sailing very well. Kevin L and Mark McC made a valiant effort to sail into town also but were beset by a series of technical issues with the boat and had to retire early.

Race 1 +2

Aidan O D in his Laser sailing very well with two wins First over the line. it was windy and Joy and Jude capsized in race 1. They struggled a bit with the recovery but managed in end.
