Thursday 3rd June was an absolutely perfect day for sailing….if there had only been one group of sailors on the same part of the lake (Which apparently was not the case this week. Ed). Nevertheless David Mckee in the Race Hut, ably assited by Maria Lamb, arranged a course for the 13 entrants to sail around and that is exactly what the WS Racers did, with great skill and determination – avoiding all the obstacles they found in their way. There were two guest visitors amongst the entrants, a young man, Oliver, sailing his Topper dinghy Sail #62 and a volunteer, Ralph, sailing an Access 303 Sail #8. There was also a first time attendee, sailor Noah who came along with his parents to see how Wealden Sailability operated. Noah went out helming an Access 303 Sail #9 with his crew, Peter Moore, and finished a very creditable 9th. (Welcome and well sailed Noah and thank you Peter! Ed)
