      Today we had our first sail at Forcett Lakes with our IOM’s.

      The weather was perfect, starting with very light winds slowly building up to the max for “A” rigs.

      A huge thanks to Pete and Ricky (Wicky) for getting permission to use the lake, setting up the buoys and launching ramp.

      I broke my jib boom after a few races, so I took over Kermit’s role and got the camera out.

      Pete (05) forgot to put the plug in his drain hole and ended up with a boat half full of water. (Lucky it was fresh water).

      Video from today,

      Bit of a weather change between the start of racing & the finish.

      Looks like a nice spot though.

        Yes Mike, not a breath of wind when we arrived, and built up nicely as the morning went on.
