Sailing last week Windguru yet again proved a good guide on the wind strength and direction - another North Easterly offshore 5-6 knots, but no sunshine
The breeze was very light with a strong Westerly setting tide which meant you needed to sit still and concentrate.
There were only 5 Lasers on the start line made up from 'lightweights' and 'middleweights' with the 'heavyweights' conspicuous by their absence.
The honours went to our fleet captain, James 'Wings' G but all the plaudits go to Jean 'pink helmet' D for her well deserved podium second place in the second race.
Thanks to Hugh S and Stuart J in White Eagle, Adrian M in the hut, Mike R for manning the winch, Glyn and Sue H for heating the soup and sharing it with us.
Sailing this Sunday The weather is predicted to change around to the South West this weekend with a force 3 or 4 in the offing.
Launching will still be reasonably calm and the breeze will be gentle enough inside Beer Head.
Hopefully we will be venturing further out into the bay in the bigger waves.
Then we will enjoy a good old fashioned Laser hiking bash upwind to earn ourselves an exhilarating downwind sleigh ride.
So come back all you 'heavyweights' all is forgiven !
Hopefully we will also be welcoming one or three more helms from Sidmouth SC, who will have finished their season over there.
We have Hugh S and Stuart J in White Eagle and Bill G in the hut.
Join us in the Clubhouse for a cup of tea or an après sail lunch around 1.30pm
Offers to help us ashore by manning the winches around 12.45pm - 1.00pm would be very much appreciated.
