At last the weed is really on the decline, nine members were at the lake today, hoping for a sail that was granted in spades. Light to moderate winds with some gusts thrown in made for a good sail after the weeks of waiting, with no ones enjoyment being impaired by weed. Six races were sailed, followed by a swift retirement to “Eric’s Folly” out of the cold wind.
Guess we have to count to days sailing as a practice day for the start of the “Winter Series” beginning next Friday the 7th December
The weed is on the decline enough to give eight skippers the chance to sail on light varying breezes today. Not too many casualties caused by floating strands of weed so things are looking good for a try at running a winter series, starting next Friday 23rd November.
Not a lot to report at club level/

Askern Radio Sailing Club has put together the following for the above day:
"So that you can book the day in your diary and make arrangements, here's the outline plan for the day. More details to follow soon:
10 - 12.30 Dragon Force 65 racing. We've chosen DF65 as it's very widely sailed and packs into the car easily for those of you travelling some distance. NOR to follow. One or two loan boats may be available, please email to email@example.com if needed.
12.45 - 13.45 Lunch at the Lakeside Cafe. Our friends there are putting together a menu for one of their great hot lunches and a hot drink. If you've sailed at Askern before, you'll know that Joanne Moon and her team put on excellent grub at very attractive prices (e.g. Steak pie, chips and veg plus a cuppa for £4.40 for delegates) Advanced booking is strongly advised, details soon.
After lunch, a short walk across the road to the meeting which will be in Askern Town Hall. Kick off 14.00 sharp.
Not been to Askern before and wondering where we are?
From M62 Junction 34, turn south on the A19 for about 4 miles. DN6 0JB
There's plenty of parking, good launch and retrieve and public toilets next to the lake.
What's not to like? Hope to see you there on Saturday 17th November
