A  very calm lake greeted the first arrivals at the lake with not a breath of wind as the first of the bacon butties got served up. 23 skippers with a variety of design came out to play some from as far afield as Norwich , West Cornwall and Fleetwood, many probably wishing they had not botherd. But by 10 am there was a faint wisp of wind and after a thirty minute delay a course was set along the south bank and the first of the seeding races got underway. Frustrating was a word used by many not just because the wind was light and fluky but there was also a little green stuff that attacked when you least expected it some suffered more than there fair share but it was annoying. Stephen Haywood and Peter Cropper won the two seding races, and racing proper started soon after, ( the bacon butties were going down very well at £ 150.00 each and with free tea or coffee all day the galley was busy. Nine skippers from Lincoln took part, and all in all it was quite good racing and if I may say so seem to improve as the day wore on. Soup and French bread for lunch Leek and Potatoe with many returning for seconds. After lunch the breeze probably increased to around 6 knots so things were really hotting up, good banter on the bank and i dont think I heard a raised voice all day. The very last race was increased to two laps , and sods law had it that on the final run the wind deserted the lake and we waited an age for a small puff to take the fleet to the finish. As many of you saw we had a man with a couple of drones doing some filming his name is Phil , we had hoped for more breeze to make it interestin but I am sure in the weeks to come we shall see the edited footage and it will be splendid. many thanks to all the helpers for the day race team and galley staff it is allways appreciated the effort you all put in and we could not do it with out you. also many thanks to all the skippers who made it such an enjoyable day. we hope you were not put off by the green stuff and ther is talk of making the event a few weeks later for next year to allow it to clear completely .

A BIT ON HEALTH AND SAFETY,AND OTHER THINGS .   Just be very carefull when you go to the jetty’s to launch for practice or racing, the jetty’s could be slippy,very slippy when wet, always hold on to the handrails and don’t rush, once launched clear the jetty so others can launch as well.

There will be ladies present so please leave the toilet how you would wish to find it CLEAN !!!!!

Smoking is not permitted in the control area when racing.
