An evening of strong winds then very little wind but an ever increasing tide. Getting around the mark on the second lap at Harts was the key, if you did and completed the race if not you didn’t complete the race.
Welcome (back) to James H Snr in his new Phantom and very nice new sail. Fair wind!

Should we start the Phantom fleet of Ireland? The population was once 3, now just one again. They never quete prospered and they never seem to die away. A difficult boat to sail but very rewarding when it goes right.

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.
