Saturday Series Race 1 & 2 

Great conditions, booked by the new Dinghy Captain, Maddie Clifton.  

Sun, sea and a steady breeze were all in attendance for the first races of the season. 19 boats turned up, to find a well organised and resourced Racing Team. With the regular race buoys yet to be dispatched, the 'inflatables' stepped up to the mark.  

The Optimist were first to start at the Club Line and headed out on course for the river- Start - laid mark in the quarters- Nass- finish at Bobby's Buoy escorted by Support Boats and family Spectators.  

The Fast & Slow start followed, Start - laid mark in the quarters- Nass- Bobby's Buoy-laid mark in the quarters- Nass- finish at Bobby's Buoy. 

Race Officer, Lee Child, had organised a mini course for the next Optimist start round a couple of inflatables and they were set off on their second race to finish at the club line.  The Fast fleet followed with an extra lap round the marks before heading back to the bar, em.... club finish line.

Well done and thank you Maddie for all the preparation you've put into kick the season off.  

Thank you to all the Race & Support Team for volunteering; can't do it without you.

Next races:  19th April 2:30pm, club line start
