Summer Series 2018 Race 1:
Wed 2 May 2018
A great start to the season – the first Wednesday evening race was held in strong westerly winds with northerly squalls. Boats lying sideways on, rounding up, kites flying like pennants and parking up, all manner of wind tonight. Still it shook the cobwebs, birds nests and crews up! Well done guys and gals, just 16 more races to get your acts together.

The first of the major weekend races is this Sunday 14.00hrs. Your race officers will be Peter and Brian Lowrie who will send you off around the Newbiggin Buoy, a bright yellow floaty thing not far from the couple holding hands on the giant goal post just off Newbiggin. The weather and winds are looking great for the event. 1400 start.
This will be followed by the 2nd Wed evening race on 9th May at 19.00hrs.
