For anyone interested in racing next year here are the details of the IRC Spinlock Discounts scheme. It would be really great if more of our Holyhead Yachts obtained valid IRC certificates and joined in some of the races both at Holyhead and at other venues. Remeber that if you renewed your certificate last year under the scheme then you can get 25% off the renewal for this year.

 Race 2 27th November 2016

The second and final race in the November series promised to be a good sail with a keener wind than forecast, high pressure in control, clearing skies and a touch on the cold side. With a NE F4-5 the course elected was Bolivar to port, Penrhos to port and finish. The fun started before the race start sequence with Lily attempting to leave the marina without any steering! The two other boats offered assistance but Lily's crew managed to get her back onto the marina with skilfull use of the engine and the wind. As Lily was unable to race it was a two boat affair with a tight finish on corrected time. Congratuations to Nigel on yet another series win.

The Series Result: 

  1. Just Jay
  2. Just Enough
  3. Lily

Race 5 Sunday 30th October

2016 10 30 13.45.29

With light winds forecast from the SE a decision was made to run Course 7 with a posibility of shortening from Bolivar back round Clipera to the finish. Incantation in her last race this year was one of the four yachts entered. From the start Incantation got a good line on the IDM and was ahead with the two J's running closer towards the wall and Lily, cutting across from the marina, just astern and to windward of Incantation.
