A rather unpromising forecast of only 7 or 8mph winds wasn't the ideal forerunner to Fleet Trophy Day but warm, dry weather might have been expected to encourage a good number of sailors onto the water. However numbers were down this year, one reason being the lack of RS Tera sailors who had been competing at an event on Windermere the day before. A report of that event is here: Y&Y RS Tera report. Despite the forecast we enjoyed an excellent day's racing in good winds (OK shifty ones at times but we're accustomed to that) and plenty of sunshine after a shower or two before racing started.
The sun shone and the wind blew just enough for last weekends Family Training weekend to be a fantastic fun filled success. Over two hundred people visited the club throughout the weekend, including the Commodore's twenty six month old granddaughter out for her very first sail
Saturday saw an amazing number of boats on the water with several people taking advantage of the training teams offer of some top up sessions, plus RYA Champion Club Coach Dave Woodhead in attendance to run the Junior Saturday Club and the twenty or so sailors that regularly attracts,together with the numerous families who had come along just for a sail and to enjoy the sun there was a fantastic carnival atmosphere. With a good number of tents in the field and the day drawing to a close an evening of barbecues and banter unfolded.
