GBYC Update

Hi all

After a few weeks of no breeze the sailing returned to the bay

The last three weeks have seen some varying winds but winds just the same
the racing has been close as usual with only minutes seperating the fleet,
the lads in amber dreams have been unstoppable, with mozz in the uninvited
with good turns of speed. Dean has the Asylum wound up in the lighter stuff.
Craig in Norma has shown flashes of brilliance only to be undone by a bit of bad luck.

Saturday saw a good breeze of 20+ for most of the day resulting in some good reaches and some
huge carts in the puffs, Craig lead at the last gybe only to get smashed early into the last reach
which let Snow and Pete through for the work to the finish,
as usual the tree of knowledge was open for business and stories were swapped and beers drunk.
A pleasing sight is to see a few juniors hanging around the sharpie fleet and not the lasers
hope for the class in the future.

This saturday is a short course series starting at two oclock not one as thought,
for those that turn up at the last minute this is thirty minutes before normal time (jess n jeff)

till next time
good sailing
