First weekend of new series at Yeadon Sailing Club Yeadon Sailing Club
Yeadon Sailing Club's first weekend of the 2011 new series .

Saturday, the day was cold and grey with light winds which occasionally dropped to nothing and then return with unexpected gusts. Out on the water there was a good mix of Lasers and Streakers followed by a Topper and a Pico. John had the pleasure of the first capsize of the season, Alan lost his hat in a gust whilst Helen was helped back by the safety boat so she could reattach her clew! Before the second race an impromptu game of tig was had when Graham found a tennis ball floating in the water. Peter S. sailing as guest showed the rest of the fleet the way round the course, but retired from both races so as not to affect the series results. It was Alan though who made it first past the winning line and just to show it wasn’t a fluke did it again in the second race.

Sunday, a brighter day but with light shifting winds. Eight boats made it out onto the water for the two races. They were a mixture of lasers, streakers, a solo and toppers. Young laser sailor Alex continued to show promise by taking an early lead and despite the difficult conditions he held his position right until the end, when John’s experience secured him first place. Bill now on the water for the second race, showed however that Solo’s have the advantage over Topper’s in low winds and took his first place of the season.
