Autumn Twilight 2 and McLaren 2015

Race 2 of the Autumn Twilight Series was held last Thursday. Five boats participated in the pursuit race of three laps of course L. The fourth and final race in the Fred McLaren Trophy Series was held on Sunday 22 February, starting at 13:00 from the HYC. Very light winds and a glassy water surface made for a fairly slow start, but not without some adventures on the line with a fleet of eighteen boats jostling for position.

LDP 5 and Twilight Series 2 Race 4

Eight boats turned out for the Thursday evening race. The course was set for three laps of A, but shortened to two laps. Conditions were unseasonably cool and overcast. Race 5 of the HYC LDP was held on Saturday. It was another cold overcast day with persistent light drizzle, which must have had a dampening effect on potential participants, as there were only three boats in Division 1 – Redback, Ramrod and Femme Fatale, and one boat in Division 2 – Obsession.
