Buddy sailing

by Adam Hilton

There was a lot of traffic on the UTLSC Whatsap in the morning. Was anyone going to sail? Was there going to be enough wind if so? In the end four boats took to the wonderfully plentiful waters on a gorgeous afternoon with the Lake at its prettiest and a little bunch of capricious winds that kept helms on their toes. Linda Spiller’s Laser Full tacked away towards Middle and made it in one. Robin Spiller’s Streaker refused to point as high but got there fast. Adam Hilton’s Solo and Leila Farmer’s Hartley 12 followed. West was rounded in two tacks. Pinky was a reach as was most of the return to Home 1 although the wind was more northerly at the beginning of the leg than it was at the end. Linda drew away but Robin and Adam diced, the Solo ahead at the end of three laps.

Nobody ran the race or took pics. Adam pressed the start horn and made a dash to get afloat. Helms stopped their watches as they crossed the finish line.
