Racing 05/09/20

9am sailing in fine weather. Sailing this morning from a start line at Leonards mark to a mark near the Power Station then down to Conniborrow and across to Faughan.  Anton H and Joy W over the line in R1 but made a good recovery. Light winds in the first race contrasted with a good breeze in second race. The second race was a double for Series B and for the Foyle Festival Cup. Congratulations to Anton H and Joy W who won it in close race with Bill J and Joe McC. Many thanks to Liam H and Peter F for rescue cover and OD duties.

Racing 22/08/20

Great racing today in F3-5. Sailing a zig zag course in Culmore bay and down river to Faughan and Conniborrow Farm. A big Russian coal boat arrived between race one and two delaying things a bit. She had a pretty nasty looking ice breaker on the bow so we decided to let them carry on and dock. Anton H and Joy W going well in Race 2. Bill J and Joe McC went for a brief swim on a tight spinnaker reach across the bay but recovered well. Aidan O D far ahead and going very well in the laser.
