Catching up on races
Conditions at Navigators and General buoy were untenable so the race committee checked locations closer to Southampton Water with a view to setting up the beat to Royal Thames buoy. For a short time, sea conditions eased but then the breeze returned in full force and racing was reluctantly abandoned for the day.
Warsash Sailing Club now aims to retrieve the lost races, starting with week 3 on 28th March. White Group will start up to three races each Sunday, whilst Blue Group plans include a second race for three classes each week. This will vary the starting sequence on weeks 4 and 6, with those involved in a second race using the first three starts of the day. Full details in Amendment to Sailing Instructions No 4 are available on www.warsashsc.org.uk.
With the long term forecast for next weekend looking more settled, competitors and race officers alike will be hoping this proves true.
