Windy Days Fleet Race ABANDONED!! - Sunday 4th August 2013.
With winds gusting at over 18knots it proved to be far too windy for the skills of most of the sailors and over half of the fleet capsized before the race could be started! It was agreed that the race should be abandoned and replaced with a rescue exercise. The club rescue boat was pressed into action and thankfully Anil Gunewardene joined in the rescue operation with his boat, ably assisted by the boat staff and Duncan & Gail. The rescued were very grateful to the rescuers.
Sails were torn and boats demasted on the lake but nobody was hurt and a lot was learned from the experience by all.
Delicious food was once again shared and enjoyed. Including a feast of pizzas prepared by the youngsters in their improvised galley.
