Day 5 Flying Fifteen European Championships - Race 10 and all change at the top

Rain overnight and then a brightening day

There was heavy rain over night and a cloudy start; all as forecast. The fleet assembled at the club and some chose to preempt the race committee and hauled out their boats. However after their traditional lunch and with no breeze in sight the race committee set off in their craft and gave a hearty 3 toots as they headed out to the race course!

Day 4 Flying Fifteen European Championships - Lessons learnt, mostly

3 Races in strong breezes and the fleet goes right to the cliffs

Day 4 started sunny but hazy with the threat of late thunderstorms. However the Ora started faintly just before noon and the fleet were called out to race. The Race Committee had agreed with the fleet that we would again sail 3 races as the forecast for Friday was poor and might mean no sailing that day


Day 3 Flying Fifteen European Championship

The day started off with more promise and as the fleet assembled for the start of the second day there was already a good breeze from the south and clear blue skies.

Day 2 ff15 Europeans

The forecast was for a much stronger "Ora" (southerly) wind than the failed attempt on Monday. The fleet left the harbour with the start of a breeze meaning no paddling required. As the boats reached the starting area it was a "both seats on deck" wind strength.
