This week saw us back at the lake at Albert Sailing Club. Light winds mean’t maximum concentration and also getting your head out of the boat. It also show demonstrated the power of photo’s. Ben raced his Optimist and had a shocking race. He had no speed all day, boat wouldn’t handle etc. Started blaming himself until we took a look at the pics after the race. Well a picture tells a thousand words. Ben had forgotten that the lake was around 2/3 full and all the other Opti’s were racing with 2/3 board down and he was racing with full board! He was slow because he was stuck in the mud for most of the race. So the lesson is if you are slow look around and check out what the competition is doing. it could be a simple thing like this.
Lachie my seven year old and I raced our Pacer and won our division and had tons of fun with the kite see above and our new Ronstan logo’s.
