A great evening of sailing and SUP (paddleboards - and beer supping) was had by all last night.

In the Lasers Richard 'Baker Boy' was quick to the lead ahead of Simon, Robin, and Michael who were covering each other in a match race that Jeremy S wanted a part of in his Fin on the first lap. As the laps increased the competition got as hot as the weather with Ollie steaming through on the run but chancing it with the gusts to take a dip to windward to cool himself down. Richard fell into the trap of looking behind as Simon reeled him in on some lucky lifts to finally take the lead with a lap to go. As the final reach to the finish approached 1st to 5th were all within 1 minute of each other after an hour of racing - Simon got the win followed closely by Richard, Robin, Jeremy H, Michael, and a sundried Ollie. Katie defected from the SUP team for the evening to be first lady helm with Izzy retiring with a dodgy clew strap (sales opportunity John...). Harrison had a great race in his radial as the only junior but we will have to wait until John gets back to see where he finished on handicap.

The 400s were out after unpacking from a weekend drifter at Hayling that sounded eventful - especially the rafting at the mark and the 200s steaming in...

The Solos were also out in force enjoying the perfect conditions.

And of course the SUP team were out with many new members having a go, great to see this part of the club expanding so rapidly - (I can see an alternative race format for those weeks when there is no wind for the fleets).

So if you haven't discovered Tuesday evening sailing / SUP yet you really should - Hope to see you on the water soon.
