RS 100 - Day 4
A classic Garda day, sunny, windy and what we all came for…..!
Day 3 RS 100
Not quite a classic Garda day but almost as good. An amendment to the sailing instructions posted last night meant an early start at 11am. The fleet ventured out in a Northerly (Pela) force 4 and racing started promptly on a trapezoid course under the Western Cliffs.
RS 800 Europeans day 2
Gill RS100 European Championships
Lake Garda was formed by a glacier that flowed down from the Dolomites, cutting through and gouging out the valley. Eventually the ice glacier melted, resulting in the stunning freshwater lake it is today. It was created in the Ice Ages 1.5 million years ago... just before our UK and Australian class chairmen were born...!
