From Martin Cushing
I have attached some photos of me competing at the Bala Massacre, may be worth showing on the blog to encourage other members to compete next year.
It was a good days sail, the race was 3 hours long in beautiful sunshine and beautiful surroundings. There was a good wind with nice planing conditions, right across the lake. It also gave me a chance to race against another 8.1 rig.
I wasn’t sure I was going to complete the full 3 hours as it was the first real race of the season, but after taking the lead on the 1 1/2 hour mark, I couldn’t really give up.
Hopefully next year a few more members will take part
By the way, Martin didn’t mention it above, but he ended up in first position overall.
