After the carnage that was West Lancs, we started the weekend at Beaver by finding out that the girls changing rooms were being redone and so we had to get changed in the ROD box at the top of a steep ladder which was a new experience! And also with a quick reminder of rules, to prevent a repeat of the previous weekend, which had ended up costing a few parents due to repairs. Oops. We were gratefully joined by team Grayson who it had to be said were ever so good! Saturday morning was light about 6mph but we got straight on with our weekends objective, upwind strategy, by doing various exercises such as buddy beats, twin windward marks and aiming for 9.1 to help us think about favoured sides of the beat , boat on boat tactics and quickest route to the windward mark taking into account the shifts. We ended the day with taking and gibing on the whistle and the key word ‘smooth’ deeply imbedded into our minds.
