The Sailing Season Starts with……Cake.

Last Sunday, the covers were finally dragged off the boats, the sails went up, and the 2024 sailing season was underway.

Prior to the first race, the wind was slightly ‘lively’, but by the time the first race started, this seemed to have blown itself out to be replaced by a good, constant, breeze, right down the Mere from the top end – almost perfect sailing conditions and, I’ve no doubt that the rest of the season will be just as good.

The racing was dominated by the Harris Family – Tom won both races by a good distance, thereby taking the lead in the Spring Series (plenty of time for someone to knock him off his perch!), whilst Mike made an early season bid for the Swimming Trophy.

Next Sunday is Easter Sunday, the forecast looks as though it will be a little milder  with a decent breeze, hopefully more of you can come along and get your season going.

As advertised, between the races, we held the pre-rigging party with a cake competition.
