The sky was overcast as the members gathered in the compound at 6.00pm. The first race was under way at app 7:15 in a moderate breeze. 10 boats raced. A slight variation to the normal course was set, two triangles, a sausage, one triangle and beat to finish.

Mike in his laser got a good start but his lead was whittled away by the two wayfarers with Margaret finishing ahead of Jim at the finish. There was not enough of breeze to allow the laser to stay ahead of the wayfarers.

The racing was much closer in the second race with the fleet nicely bunched together at the start. Tom Mchugh in his Enterprise set out to lead from the start, however Margarete soon closed on him and a great contest ensued over the first two triangles, so intense was the competition between them that they took each other on a merry dance into another triangle while their competitors sailed the shorter sausage course to the leward mark.
It was two junior sailors (Sean Hynes and Mike O’ Dea in their RS200) who took advantage and went on to beat the fleet to the line ahead of Tom (Ent.) and Jim (Wayfarer).
The juniors are making tremendous progress this year, in the May series Sean and Hugh have won five races between them. The rest of the juniors are also featuring in the results.

On returning to the compound after a very enjoyable evening on the lake we found a new wayfarer had arrived, Chris Cahir has decided to try his skills in a wayfarer and no doubt he and Ashling will soon be coaxing “Madame Vice” into the lead in Cullaun. Congratulations Chris and Ashling enjoy it.

Regards
Tommy Scott and Mike Laffin
