The North Mirror Zone Squad had a cold, wet and windy but fun weekend at Elton Sailing Club.
There were lots of capsizes on the saturday, while we were tring to practise starts. Then in the afternoon we went out and tried to have a blast with the spinakers up, focusing on bearing away on gusts but the wind dropped. After that in the afternoon we did the no name race to practice our starts and tactics. In the evening some of us played a big game of table tennis and went to the pub!
The next day for our fitness it was cold and raining outside so we tried to do team juggling (some of us kept dropping the balls though). Later we did 3 races with a plan of a crews race which didn't happen because of a lack of wind. The results for the racing were:
1st Reg and George
2nd Chloe and Izzy
3rd Oliver and James who just lost out on 2nd from countback.
Everyone was awarded with a milky way. Thanks to all the coaches and the club for hosting the event.
(Hope every one has warmed up and dried off)
