Report by Andrew Dean

Despite there being force 5 or 6 winds, gusting 7 in the Irish Sea, there were reasonable conditions at the reservoir when the fleet arrived to rig the dinghies on Sunday.  For the first of two races the wind was a moderate southerly with a few stronger gusts to test the unwary.  A fleet of 9 boats launched consisting of 2 RS Aero7’s, 3 RS Tera Pros, and one each Finn, Devoti D-Zero, RS200 and Laser standard rig.  For the most part it was dull and it rained, but the valley setting remained attractive.
