Its the 11th January; its cold, around 5 degrees Celsius and the winds forecast to gust up to 27 miles per hour, that’s force 6 !
Club members, looking forward to a sail but not a ducking in the water, decided to take out club picos instead of their own dinghies as they are very stable.
There were 3 capsizes, but the dinghies are easy to right and so the sailors were back in the race.
Congratulations to Michael our winner and all six competitors who defied the weather .
“It was great fun, I enjoyed it”, commented Tony. ” I will definitely take a pico out again when there are in strong winds on the lake”.
The Club now plans to have a special Pico race event in March .
