After a season spent struggling to find adequate wind and corresponding suitable courses, we were blessed with more rugged conditions last Sunday. While the CB was being readied, the wind was SE 12-14 kts., gusting to 20+ , varying wildly and rapidly in direction and showing signs of building. A quick canvas of fleet members that could be found around the Boat Haven suggested the race be abandoned. This proved a correct decision as around what would have been the start time the wind was up to 18 kts with gusts to 23 and the sea was a mass of whitecaps. Later a couple of 33 kt. gusts were noted.
There will be a make-up race this Sunday (Oct 25 th.) but, as the CB will be unavailable, we will be back to a City Dock start.
