Sorry - no photos available for this weekend

32 T15 sailors from four teams competed in the second West Zone event at WPSC on the 15th. The weather was more like March than June with the temperature barely reaching 12 degrees. The West wind was squally, bringing heavy rain (and on one occasion hail) showers, although the sun did make an occasional appearance. Competition between Hollingworth Hunters and West Kirby Warriors was fierce, but the Warriors took the team prize by 6 points. WPSC sailor Molly Howell came 2nd in the 5.8m fleet, with her younger sister Lucy taking 4th in the 3.5 fleet.           

The sun came out in the evening, but unfortunately very few people stayed on for a BBQ and live music from Chas Coghill and friends.

10 adult competitors turned out on Sunday for the NWWA raceboard event. In contrast to Saturday, the weather was warm and sunny, but with very light wind which veered from SW to NW and died completely by 2.30pm. We managed three races, victory going to Jeff Gorton, with Chas Coghill second and WPSC’s Dave Martin third.

Here's what the RYA's website says about the event.

There was little support for Watersports for Cancer Research though we'd fared much better in previous years. Some money was raised from the sale of cakes on Saturday, and chilli on Sunday, both provided by Hilary Martin. Mike Stemmer also agreed to donate galley profits from the sale of teas and coffees to W4CR.

Afternoon boys were mainly on 5m sails, a bit underpowered at times between the gusts but overall a good day, some good wipe outs!!
