Change of plan

posted 25 Aug 2019, 15:01 by John Ferguson
Unfortunately plans to sail to Newburgh on Sunday had to be abandoned due to lack of wind at the appointed time. The light westerly breeze present before the start faded to almost nothing as the signal went leaving the fleet struggling to reach what had been the windward mark against the flow of the river. Despite being only a few boat lengths from the line, it took about half an hour to reach so the race was abandoned before the seabreeze filled in a little later.  A shorter course was subsequently set and most of the boats enjoyed four rounds in a force 3 easterly in bright sunshine as compensation.
