Turned out a perfect day for racing. There was a fair bit of a breeze out to sea with 28kts recorded at one time on the start boat. Many thanks to all those that took part, you make this sport the success story that it is! Good, hard racing and with amazingly close battles and finishes in the sprints later in the day.

10:20 :: Yes, beach webcam shows the horizon angled up right-to-left. It makes for a slower first leg but downhill all the way on the return leg.
08:45 :: We’re still looking at light North winds and plenty of sunshine so all systems go at the moment for the event.

14:45 :: Current thoughts are for the East winds to clear through Thurs/Fri midday then back NW and 13-16mph.
10:45 :: BBC and MetOffice forecasts just in and now giving East winds for Saturday/Sunday. Not what we want at all as the busy beach is very exposed to Easterlies, so let’s see how it changes on the next one. There’s a low pressure in Biscay that’s the culprit.
09:30 :: Latest forecast for Saturday 12th June is GOOD with light NorthWesterly 10mph, sunny giving calm water and a light offshore breeze. This means the very popular Gyllyngvase beach is likely to be packed with tourists sunning themselves so give yourselves plenty of time to get to the event.
