Report by Andrew Dean

Despite there being force 5 or 6 winds gusting 7 in the Irish Sea, there were reasonable conditions at the West Baldwin reservoir when the fleet arrived to rig the dinghies on Sunday.  The first of two races the wind was a moderate southerly with a few gusts from the southeast to test the unwary.  Despite the forecast for a decrease, it was windier for the second.  A fleet of 8 boats launched consisting of 2 RS Aero 7’s, 2 Laser radials, and one each Enterprise, Finn, Devoti D-Zero and Laser standard rig.  For the most part it rained heavily and the forecast may explain the fewer-than-normal numbers.
