Tuesday’s Spring Evening series racing was a bit of a challenge for the race committee. Reasonably steady winds went to light and variable as the first race got underway. A second race was attempted but called off as the went went away altogether and the race committee kindly towed most of the fleet back to the club.
All in all, it was still a lovely night to be on the water.
Thom Lee managed to pass Brian Dellett on the last leg for the win. It was good to see Brian out in front of the fleet for much of the race and picking up a respectable 2nd out of 10 boats.
