Wind conditions on Sunday for the latest round of the Watling Streetworks dinghy series were very much better than the general Island forecast predicted.  The West Baldwin valley as usual putting it’s own special spin, literally on wind directions.

Whilst crews were rigging their dinghies there was an excellent breeze blowing, unusually down the valley, however, as the sun rose it took with it much of the wind.

The first race, on a rather optimistically large (as it turned out) starboard (clockwise) course was set.  The wind forecast was for the wind to ‘ease’ during the morning, it did, almost to nothing with the adults managing two laps and the juniors just one.
