Batch and Peter fighting it out!

Report by Andrew Dean, from the back of the fleet

Despite there being force 5 or 6 winds forecast for the Irish Sea, there were calm patches at West Baldwin reservoir when the fleet arrived to rig the dinghies on Sunday.  Unfortunately the wind failed to fill in during the morning,   A healthy fleet of 16 boats launched consisting of 3 RS Aero7’s, 4 Laser radials, 2 Finns, 2 Aero 5’s, 2 D Zero blue rig and one each Laser standard, Enterprise and father-of-the-fleet Jim Whitelegg’s Gull.  Quite a variety to watch.
