NFYC – Winter Series Race 2

Winter series race 2 weather warning

On Sunday 23rd October 2022 the NFYC winter series race No 2 got under way, 5 yachts on the start line, Blue Streak, Flyer, Burgler, Shamir & Menhic. The weather forecasts were for strong winds, gusting over 28kt with heavy rain and thunder storms.

This didn’t quite match the 4-6kts we received with Menhic having to retire leaving 4 yachts to drift along the river. When the wind gave up totally, the heavy rain started, all yachts getting a free wash, care of mother nature. Flyer & Burgler making good use of their spinnakers with flyer taking line honours

Thank you to the Race officer and her team. The cooks, Fambridge Yacht Havens for their support and use of the trot boat and all the club members who turn up to cheer on the competitors.
