Racing at Eastleigh 30 July


A great day's sailing, the rain held off, (mostly) and the wind was playing its normal Lakeside games. Everyone was on B rigs with the inevitable calm spots and then gusts causing diving.


5 Eastleigh sailors were joined by 4 from Emsworth who arrived with some very impressive boats, however I think they all found our lake very challenging. We managed 9 heats over a triangular course and thankfully weed was not a problem today. A couple suffered minor failures which were fixed at the lakeside without loss of overall points.


As a bit of fun, taking two discards into account Eastleigh scored 116 points and Emsworth 131. Using the low score system Eastleigh came out on top.
