Day 5 Morning Report

Good morning from a stunning Hayling Island Sailing Club! It’s 23 degrees, there’s a 14 knot North Easterly breeze and Libby Greenhalgh has just tweeted that we should see a good 12-16 knot ENE breeze. Gold fleet are set for 4 races started at 11am on the course close to the beach – it should make for excellent sailing conditions and exciting watching!



Another hour’s postponement – now looking at 1pm start for Gold fleet and 1.30pm start for Silver fleet. The wind is great at the clubhouse, but from a northerly direction, and there’s only 5 knots out on the racecourse.

PRO’s plans for day 4

Tim Hancock, International Moth World Championships Principal Race Officer, said on his plans for Day 4, “We had hoped to start the fleet early and get out early in the morning breeze, but that’s died already unfortunately, so now our best scenario we think is the sea breeze coming in. We’re planning to hold the fleet ashore for a couple of hours with AP over 2 and then this afternoon the sea breeze should come in from about 1ish from the South West direction. Fingers crossed.”MW0414_IMG_9776

Day 4 Morning Report

Good morning from Costa del Hayling! After a great barbeque at the club last night, Gold fleet are set to start proceedings on Alpha course with a 9:55 warning signal and the Silver fleet on Charlie course with a 10:25 warning signal.

Alpha course is the closest to the shore so will make for great spectating – why not make your way down and watch the action?

Stokes Bay SC reporting 7 knots, gusting 12 from 336 at 8:34. Fingers crossed that a good breeze comes in now we’re into the business end of the regatta.IMG_4517[1]
