The weather is getting stormy, there’s a chill in the air and the nights are drawing in.  Only one thing to do – run for the hills and don’t forget to bring a dinghy with you!

This is exactly what the 14 competitors, which for most was the first round of the Watling Street Winter Dinghy Series did on Sunday morning.

All but five competitors missed a classic Sunday morning last week on Injebreck reservoir which lies in the west Baldwin Valley which runs north/south.  The strong westerly for most of the Island was near gale force but in the shelter of the valley gave the Race Officer the opportunity to set a course with two windward marks, one at each end of the lake.
