Wednesday 17th August, 10 keelboats turned out for the evening race, kindly RO’d by Chris Hill from his Dad’s RIB.
A typical PSM keelboat evening ensued with the wind swinging hard left and dying off an hour after the start. Seven boats managed to finish before the complete calm set in, winner was James Walker’s First Class 8 “Reprob8”. In contrast, the Friday (19th) evening session for the dinghies went ahead in a stiff southerly wind with some nice waves to climb over. Five boats appeared, both races won by Mike Pridham sailing his Radial with Dave Batchelor runner-up sailing his Aero 7. The second race was shortened as it freshened up even more and the light was fading in the overcast conditions.
