Parkstone Monday Summer Series 2015

It is now Friday 24th July, and , unfortunately, an injury to Vinyl Solutions followed by an injury to me (too much Laser sailing in strong winds last weekend) has curtailed our involvement in the J24 Summer Series for a couple of weeks.

Vinyl Solutions is awaiting new cap shrouds but, hopefully, will be back on the water next Monday.

In the meantime best of luck to those taking part in the Taittinger Regatta in Yarmouth this coming weekend. Sorry we couldn't join you but family commitments put paid to that idea.

On Monday 13th July I was pleased to join William Pollock's team on board Flying Colours competing with four other J24s in some quite strong winds. A windward/leeward course made place changes frequent. Crackerjack started the first upwind leg like a train, but gear failure prevented their use of a spinnaker. Andrew Hill and team on board Wijit got away from the fleet on the second downwind leg and never looked back, registering their first win of the season.
