Sailing Report – Helen Martin, Vice Commodore
Lovely sunshine and warmth all day on Wednesday made for a most enjoyable day for cruisers and racers alike, shorties and shorts, sun cream and hats were, at last, the order of the day. An unexpectedly lively breeze popped up at lunchtime to give the school sailors a lot of fun. It gradually died but just about held out for the evening race. Thursday evening (8th) and Saturday sailing was blown off and Sunday proved exhilarating and challenging for everyone, including the intrepid Chew Crew.
