The new sailing season got underway on Sunday 20th March 2016, with six boats taking to the water. The conditions were nice for the first day back, in normal Clevedon fashion slightly changeable. Starting with more wind then forecast in the first race, to dropping off to nearly nothing by the end of the last race.
Martin Gibson got a good start in both, making it difficult to catch him! While the Solo and other Lasers battled it out behind, not far behind having a great race, was Grace Cherry in the Topper who took 2nd place in the first race.
The sun came out and it was a lovely way to start what we hope to be another successful sailing season. Easter weekend has two days of sailing for the Easter Bonnet on Sunday 27th and Monday 28th March 2016 both days’ first race starting at 9am.
