The third junior series of the year got under way this Sunday. With some of our core sailors at Open meetings – or even worse – at parties, we were expecting low numbers. However with some new faces on the race course following on from successes at Holiday Week this was not the case and good racing was had by all..
Back after the summer holiday was Thomas Bransom; first time to do 3 races was Freddie Monk; first 3 races in wind – Jamie Tylecote and having a great day Jordan Shales. Also having a good day ,after training yesterday and in one case,taking part in Cygnets in the morning , were Annabel Turnbull and Joseph Green. Ewan McAnally continued improving his prowess in the Bic.
Oscar Morley, who had been at an open meeting all weekend surprised us all by arriving on the race course in time for the second race, no one want to miss races!
The wind was gusty and squally with some meaningful waves and it was challenging racing out on the water. In the end it was Ben Tylecote who narrowly won the races closely followed by Oscar who showed his sportsmanship on the water by taking turns even when hitting the mark was unobserved by other competitors.
Well done everyone.
