Storm Brian gusts too strong after Autumn Pursuit race
FOUR boats set out on Sunday to compete for the Autumn Pursuit Race, where the slowest boat starts out first, followed at timed intervals by the faster ones.
Young Evan Parry was off first in a Laser but retired, Oliver Whitehead in a Solo survived the race to finish runner-up to Richard and Lauren Marsh (RS200) who won convincingly.
While the wind strength was suitable for racing, the gusts that came along were too strong for the rest of the day’s racing.
Several of the club’s young sailors have been competing in Lancashire Schools Sailing Association events recently with success.
