Mid-Summer Wednesday Night Sail

It was an ideal evening of close racing in a steady force 4 westerly wind for 11 XODs and 2 Swallows. The harbour was beautiful in the sunshine with blue skies. Lass had a new crew as she had been kindly lent out for the evening. Xcitation managed to disappear over the horizon, but the remainder of the fleet, lead by Lass and Beaver, had a very close race to John’s Folly and back. The ladies in Thalia had a great race holding their breathe from Itchenor to the club finish as it was neck to neck up to the line for the rest of the fleet. Tide, wind and crew performance meant it was anyone’s race. The lovely evening was completed by meeting friends in the bar for a drink, exchanging the myths of XOD tuning over an excellent meal.
A perfect mid-summer evening.
