There was a fantastic turn out of around 20 boats and everyone seemed very happy to catch up again after along winter. The socially distanced outdoor briefing and prize giving worked very well and the sunshine made the outdoor changing almost pleasurable. It was a stunning day with unbroken sunshine. The wind was blowing the N/NE which resulted in [...]

However, the Notice of Race says even one race constitutes a series, so we will keep it on the table, so to speak. Schools Members [...]
