Having been postponed from October 2022 due a lack of wind, it was looking doubtful as to whether the Young Guns competition would make it to the water due to (wait for it) a lack of wind.
With the Postponement Flag raised we all stared at the lake in the hope that any ripple on the surface wasn’t the effect from a passing fish.
A decision was made, and all junior helms were advised at the race briefing that 11.00 would be the go/no-go deadline for the first race (at this point a single race would be gladly welcomed).
As the wind started to fill-in across the lake at 10:45 there was a scramble to launch all dinghies in the hope that they would make it to the start line in time for the 11:00 start.
With discussions in the race box speculating on whether a second lap would be a lap to far a decision was made to go for two laps and the shorten course was issued (A good call by our Race OOD for the morning).
With race two in progress a decision to repeat the format of the first race was made to shorten course at two laps.
Well done to all of our Junior and Youth helms who participated in the Young Guns competition.
1st Place – Izzy Cobb,
2nd Place – Alex Yeates and Dan Hebditch,
3rd Place – Adam Gillow,
4th Place – Izzy and Sophia Johnson.
