Winter Series

 In Sailing

The FGSC Winter series got under way on Sunday 3rd November.

Although it was almost called off because of the weather the wind eased and racing went ahead, with 8 boats out braving the rain.


By week 2 the weather had changed once again.

The start was delayed so that sailors could attend the remembrance service. Then it was a quick dash to get to the start line for the start.

Weather was N2/3 in the river. (10knts) and a lovely sunny morning with a running start.

The Taser rounded the mark first with the laser at his stern, quickly followed by the rest of the fleet.

Three Fusions enjoyed a very tight race with David giving up the lead when capsizing. Leaving the other two fusions to finish within half a boat length of each other.

There were seven boats in total and they all finished very close together.

Special thanks goes to this weeks safety boat crew Mike and Andrew.
