This Sunday’s Pico Match Racing (12/03/2017) marks the end of compulsory wetsuit season, but while wet and dry suits are now optional, they are still highly recommended.
However, it’s not quite shorts weather just yet, so (if you decide not to wear one) please ensure that you dress appropriately and remember that DOs can still require members to wear them in extreme or unexpectedly cold conditions.
Congratulations to Tony who used the 5 essentials to get the winning edge on the 12 participants of our match racing session . It was one on one around a very short course as there was little wind and all competitors raced each other in turn. Tony won the best of 4 races.
Such concentration was required to get first past the finish line that Robert forgot about the dangers of getting too close to the lake edge .
Trico- Rob met his Match at the finish line to be passed by Tony !!!
Getting a good start was key, setting sails and using weight to influence speed in such light airs.
