Picos prove popular boats in gusty winds

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 .
