Despite a mixed forecast, the May Bank Holiday weekend delivered some fantastic sunshine and great light to moderate winds to enable our young sailors to get their “sea” legs back. We had a group of wonderfully enthusiastic beginners taking to the water for the first time, whilst the intermediates and racing group demonstrated they’d forgotten little over the winter. It was also great to see so many Toppers/Lasers out on the water, a few of which thoroughly tested the water temperature! A great start to the season for Spinnaker Youth Training.
