Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 10 February 2019

Almost a Spring Day!

Almost a Spring Day!

Report by Jerry Colman

After the gales of Friday and Saturday, enough to stop the Steam Packet, one might have worried that the weather gods were against us but no – they came up with sunshine and moderate to occasionally fresh breezes on Sunday morning to get races 3 and 4 of the February series off the mark.

11 boats took to the water (plus the patrol boat ably crewed by Helen Kee and Jenny Dean) for this evolution of the challenge. The younger sailors were off racing their Teras across so us seniors were looking forward to getting a bit nearer the podium if not onto it.  Click here to read the rest of Jerry’s report - Manx Sailing and Cruising Club Feb 10th report

Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 3 February 2019

A gloomy day on Injebreck

A gloomy day on Injebreck

The first round of the February dinghy racing for the Watling Streetworks series nearly got off to a very slow start this Sunday morning on West Baldwin reservoir.  With the wind in a westerly direction the Baldwin valley was completely sheltered, not a breath rippled the water and it was just above freezing. Having lost the last two weeks of the January series to either too much or no wind it didn’t look promising. Click her for the full report - Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 3 February 2019

Watling Streetworks Winter Series – January Series

 

Week 3 - Not a breathe!

Week 3 – Not a breathe!

Now there's too much!

Week 4 – Now there’s too much!

Peter Cope clinches the Scott Trophy for the January Series without having to get his boat wet, for 2 weeks running the racing was cancelled.  Last Sunday 20th the reservoir was mirror flat with no sign of wind, one week later 30 odd knots plus, as is usual the photo does not do the wind justice.
It’s been an odd Month with races 1 & 2 held in very little wind and races 3 & 4 poorly attended because everyone had spent the night listening to the tiles rattling on their roof, whilst Injebreck was in fact quite sheltered (lets hope for better next week with the new series). 
Due to David Batchelor swapping boats with son Ben in Race 2, this drops David off the podium and gifts second to Mike Pridham and third to Donald Edwards.

Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 13 January 2019

A moody morning at Injebreck

A moody morning at Injebreck

Report by Andrew Dean

All we asked for was a change of wind conditions from last week, when very light winds gave very awkward sailing conditions.  And, goodness me, were the wishes answered, with a gale warning in force for the North Irish Sea and a gust at Ronaldsway of 37 knots recorded at 1pm, well in to strong gale territory.  Clearly the forecast discouraged attendance this week, with just 8 boats rather than the 15 of last week. Although westerly winds are heavily attenuated at Injebreck, there were many severe gusts to catch the unwary, and indeed the experienced, as we shall see.  Jim Whitelegg launched his two-sail Gull only to think better of it and return to the slipway, opining that it was “swimming weather”.  Continue reading here - Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 13 January 2019

Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 6 January 2019

The first dinghy racing of 2019 took place on West Baldwin reservoir on Sunday morning, Round 1 of the Watling Streetworks Winter Series.

The forecast was of westerly and variable breeze and was spot on, it was very variable.  Early birds reported that there was no wind but whilst the masses rigged their dinghies it became a bit gusty only for it to drop off to just variable, in strength and direction too.  Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 6 January 2019.
