Largs 1st & 2nd June

Unread postby DavidD » Tue May 21, 2013 4:04 pm

After the winter conditions we experienced at our first event at Kielder we're hoping for warmer weather on the west coast of Scotland at Largs. This event doubles as the Scottish Open Championships and incorporates a Team 15 Inter-Club event so envisaging plenty boards on the water.
The event is being hosted by Largs Sailing Club just south of the town centre - location details at http://www.largssc.co.uk

Four NEWS sailors made the trip to Largs last weekend to join with the Scottish sailors at their Open Windsurfing Championships. Sailing from the Scottish Sailing Institute / Yacht Haven in the channel between Cumbrae and the mainland, the organisers set some fairly big upwind / downwind courses (a la Olympics course). With slighty less wind than the Formula sailors wanted, the majoritory of them switched to the Raceboard fleet which I think was out-numbered by the juniors and youths sailing Technos either at 7.8m / 6.8m or 5.8m.

With the wind on Saturday shifting quite a bit between races the mark laying crew were kept busy and typically during one of those re-laying sessions the best winds kicked in giving evryone a chance for some informal blasting. Sunday was brilliant weatherwise and the first shortie wetsuits made an appearance despite the water temperature still being a bit on the nippy side. In all competitors completed 6 races over the weekend giving everyone 1 disgard. Full results are available at;

Congratualtions to the Race Organisers who put on a great event.

Next NEWS event at Ullswater Yacht Club over the weekend of 29/30th June
