Five intrepid skippers brought their VM’s ( 4 High Fliers and one Traditional ) for the first regatta in the series. Four were launched but, due to conditions of very of high winds, it was decided that cancelling was the best option. Throughout the week preceding, we were worried that the almost dead calm conditions would continue into the weekend. We couldn’t have been more wrong! I do know that Chris O’Brien’s keel was visiting the air for most of his time on the water and everyone’s gunnels were almost constantly awash.
Here’s to better luck in the future.
