Wednesday Evening Race Report

18/05/2015

16 members enjoyed an evening of champagne sailing on Wednesday 13th May. Blue skies, 10kts and 22°C welcomed the sailors to QMSC. With a start time of 1900hrs, the last crew member was ribbed out to the start line seconds before the preparatory signal sounded.



The teams enjoyed 4 short course, port hand square fleet races, with spinnakers, all the races were very close, and the starts were particularly impressive, with all the boats jostling for the prime position on the line. With the sun inching ever closer to the horizon, Race Officer Richard Ambler, was determined to fit in as many races as possible, and the final race saw the boats doing a downwind finish, crossing the line within seconds of each other.



After racing the crews joined the QM dinghy racers went ashore for supper in the clubhouse and a pint or two. All the sailors were thrilled with the racing and keen to make the most of the long summer evenings on the water again soon.
