Competitors were greeted with champagne sailing conditions for the first day of the OSSC joint OK and Europe event. PRO Andy Turner set a course which took the fleet out to sea for some Olympic courses and the fleet enjoyed some great racing in glorious conditions. Ellie Clark won both races, pursued by Debs Turner who took 2nd in both races.
Sunday was considerably windier and with a forecast of the wind increasing the course set made maximum use of the lagoon for some screaming planes, but also included a quick 'out to sea and back' to provide everyone with the challenge of getting back through the cut on an ebbing tide! Malcolm Morley won the first race and had a real battle with Simon Turner in Race Two, with Turner winning out. A fantastic event, which was won on count back by Ellie Clark (OSSC). Malcolm Morley was second, with Simon and Debs Turner finishing in that order - again split by count back.
OSSC have invited us back for 2017 - put the 10th/11th of June in the diary now and come and join in the fun!
