The normal DBSC racing is occasionally replaced by a special regatta. This was the weekend for the Royal Alfred Yacht Club’s “Bloomsday Regatta”.
It was a glorious Saturday, for a change, and saw a good fleet of Lasers on their startline but a rather disappointing PY fleet for the OK Dinghy to take on. Nonetheless, the challenge was there and had to be faced.
Two races later, the trophy was won. Rather nice too.
The racing itself was tactically challenging, with bigger and longer windshifts embedded within a pattern of small oscillating shifts. Get one wrong and you were in trouble!
