Race Training and Taster Session at Oxford!

Our Race Training & Taster Session at Oxford on Sat 27 June was a great success and was blessed with good wind most of the day, in fact it would have been the perfect day for a fantastic Racing Event. The Race Training aspect of the day was nicely combined with the Board Tasting, and a number of youngsters got to try out Raceboards and Formula boards for the first time. Thanks go to Rob & Annette Kent and Chris Gibson for their training and for the raceboards they brought, to Steve Sugden and Tim Gibson for flying the flag for the Formula Fleet and also to Kerry Hastings for manning the safety boat.

Round Hayling Successes:
On Good Friday the Annual Round Hayling event was held, this time with light winds and rather too much mist for comfort! Once again LWA sailor Rob Kent was first across finish line, having battled with Louis Morris, whose unfamiliarity with the way round - made all the trickier by the mist- might have cost him the win. As it turned out, Rob made it home a good ten minutes ahead. Many congrats to Rob and to all the other LWA sailors who took part.
