A snowy morning, just needed some sunshine!

Report by Jerry Colman

A light to moderate, pleasantly warm south-westerly wind and some stunning Manx snowy hill scenery greeted the eight boats for this the second day’s racing of the Watling Streetworks Spring Series on Baldwin reservoir. 

The port course saw the fleet rounding marks 1, 3 and 5 before tacking back to the start / finish line. This gave us a beat off the start, then a beam reach across the lake, a run back up to no 5 and finally another beat to the line, repeated until the Race Officer decided that enough was enough. Pretty well every leg and also every mark provided challenges and opportunities to move ahead (or get left behind).
