The Club Friday “Series 2” – ‘Round 2’ was not reported as it was postponed due to bad weather, hopefully the coming Friday will make it possible to sail then.

Today was a Club day with nine skippers out for some free sailing (no series) in what proved to be near impossible in some very high winds.  All boats were rigged with No. 3 sails only because there isn’t a smaller set.
