SWD Winter Series 2 at Yeovil – 20191208

A blustery and muddy Sutton Bingham Reservoir, but with the wind from the perfect direction (WSW).

The forecast predicted more, but apart from a single strong gust front the wind was mid to low B for the most part.

Very tricky sailing with big shifts and channels of wind. After 16 races it was a very good win from Gavin Watson.

A big thank you to Tony Edwards and his team for running the event.
