News / Wall to wall sunshine in Wales

Avatar

Another fantastic weekend sailing at Plas Heli Sailing Centre with winds varying from light to champagne conditions..  The racing was hard faught by the whole fleet..  Saturday dawned over cast with glimces of sunshine and three excellent run races.  Matt Biggs and Becka won the first two races and Simon and Ally  Potts were second.  However in the last race Ally went to feed Nicole and so they did not sail.  This race turned out to be quite bizarre having a 100 degree wind shift on the second beat dumping all those on the lefthand side of the beat and saw two  boats flying their spinnakers in the last 200 yards to the windward mark.  This race was led by Steve & Gill leney all the way to finish however confusion on the finish resulted in Matt taking the win.
Sunday produced a cloudless day (In Wales) and the fleet floundered out to the committee boat just expecting to return to shore through lack of wind.  However, it filled in and it was champagne sailing conditions in glorious sunshine.  This time Simon and Ally stamped their authority on the fleet with two comfortable wins. 
Plas Heli layed on a supper on Saturday night and even kept the bar open late.  We must have a reputation.  We all had a great time.  A big thank you to all involved and the club
