Saturday afternoon was designated ‘practice day’ but all we really did was practice trying to keep the boats in one piece in a classic building Fleetwood breeze. We started off with 9 boats and after 6 races we were down to a sole survivor! There were fried electronics, ripped sails (sorry Derek) and a broken rudder that required the West System and hand dryer treatment. Competitors then retired to the Mount for ham egg and chips and a couple of beers. A very civilised evening as befits a very civilised class.
