Andrew Dean leading the fleet

The final racing of the Watling Streetworks Winter Series took place at West Baldwin Reservoir on Sunday morning.  The conditions, mostly sunny and with a, not so common, northerly breeze blowing down the valley, perhaps spring has finally sprung!

Although the breeze may not have been as steady as it would usually be from the north it was good enough to bring a fleet of eleven, including Jim Whitelegg (Gull) to the start.

A starboard (clockwise) course was set by the Race Officer using the full length of the lake.  A crowded start saw Andrew Dean (Radial) first away and sadly first to find the patch near the first mark with no wind.  The majority of the fleet got ahead with Dave Batchelor (Hadron) taking the lead on the water.
