Race report 17 September 2022

The day was dominated by rain shifting the breeze around before it returned to the gradient W/NW when the clouds moved away. During briefing there was a heavy dark rain cloud to the south which came in during launching with a big gust. This left shift wasn’t permanent and by the first start, the breeze had moved back toward the right (west) again).The race committee comprised of Luke Parker (PRO) and Richard George (LTRAR), assisted by Diana Chen (COTD and photography) and Owen Kenny (Co-COTD) had their work cut out for them, getting three flights of racing off on time and in quick succession, so sailors could return to shore to watch the football finals.Many thanks also to Ben Byford and Craig Ryan for assisting in a second RIB on the water while David Evenden and Ian Tudball assisted Paul and Shirley driving the sandwich presses in the canteen.
