Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 22 March 2020

Strange times, a strong easterly wind blowing across the Island.  Despite this, within the shelter of the West Baldwin Valley the last races of the Watling Streetworks Winter Series took place on Sunday morning.

Although much moderated, the wind gave the usual mix of gusts, shifts and deadly calms, just from a slightly different direction.  Please click on this link for the full write-up - Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 22 March 2020

Within the shelter of the Baldwin valley dinghy racing took place on Sunday morning as part of the final month of the Watling Streetworks winter series.

It’s usual, when the wind has some westerly in it, conditions were variable in direction, variable in strength and, not forgetting, variable calms!

New to this winter treat was a young junior, Cameron Blamey, sailing a tiny Optimist class dinghy (a huge class in Europe) who quickly showed the fleet that he is not just a beginner!  Click here for the full write-up - Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 15 March 2020

Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 8 March 2020

As seems to be the norm this winter blustery conditions again prevailed for the latest round of the Watling Streetworks dinghy series.  As usual in the relative shelter of the Baldwin Valley the conditions were gusty, shifty including a few calms just to make it interesting.

A good fleet of thirteen launched with twelve making it to the start.  It seems that gentleman Jim Whitelegg in the ‘mighty’ Gull was finding it a little too frantic and he returned to the bank to enjoy his pipe.  Full write-up - Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 8 March 2020

Report by Andrew Dean

Gales were still blowing at sea but the south-west direction allows safe sailing at Injebreck.  Almost. Gusts of Force 7 strength tested those brave enough to take on the wild conditions for the final month of the Watling Streetworks dinghy series.  Not only did the strength of the wind vary from zero to 7, the direction swung entertainingly. 8 boats launched, including 5 RS Aeroes, three with 5 square metre rigs and two with the larger 7 sq metre rigs, a standard rig Laser was joined by a Radial, and an RS Tera completed the fleet.  There were a number of capsizes with no reported serious injuries, and the Patrol boat was busy.  Read the rest of the report here - Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 1 March 2020
