The lake looked glassy as sailors arrived on Sunday (18 April 2021) and a dozen boats set out to try and race in what should have been a light westerly airstream. Alas, a slight breeze was coming from the north-east.
Les Bithell and Emma Turner made the best effort and got round well ahead on the shortened one lap race. Following them were Adam Din and Olivia Zuniga in a RS200. Others struggled to get round as the airstream did change direction.
There was no support for another race in these conditions, but a few went out for some fun on the water. Adam McGovern and Chris Massey took their very young daughters out in Mirrors, while Xavier Bramwell ghosted around in a Topper (pictured).
