Sailing Classes

Our First Starter Race

The object of this race was to get more yachts out on club events. This was a great success with an entry of 7 yachts. A wide variety of yachts took part including some of the normal Holyhead racing fleet. On Lily and Incantation crews were mainly new recuits or swaps so a lot of different sailing techniques were discussed and attempted. This race was course 5 on the club list and takes in Meath, Penrhos, Meath, Penrhos, Clipera and Outer Distance Mark. The weather was superb with a consistent 12 - 19 kt South Westerly breeze and plenty of sunshine.
