Swarkestone – Saturday interim report (full report to follow)

The wind was cold and from the North (not the best direction for the lake). It was also very wet, both the journey and rigging the boat. The good news is that the wind was not as venomous as forecast and the welcome was warm.

Three races were sailed, all won by the Wilsons. Brian Lamb/Sam Pygall lie second. Mike and Carl Weighill lie third. Second to fifth places are close overnight, so all to play for with two races tomorrow.

A very good meal, free beer and a band tonight. Will Brian Lamb be performing equally well on the dance floor too?
