Mirror Nationals Day 3

Waiting for the wind to fill in at Abersoch on day 3 - Photos by Rob Bellfield & Martin Egan

Déjà vu - well, almost, this time it's a three hour postponement. Abersoch Sailing School are giving a discount off doughnut rides,  paddleboarding,..... to the Mirror sailors. Big risk of sunburn, sunstroke & heat exhaustion.

During the postponement a fine breeze settled down and the Race Officer Chris Hoppin set the fleet out for 3 races in champagne conditions.

The results show a good mix of adults and juniors at the front of the fleet. Robert Richardson & Sandy Simpson from Royal Windemere YC followed up their very successful start to the season with a win in Race One, closely followed by Eleanor Keers and Izzy Pugh from Itchenor SC. Race Two saw P&B legend Dave Wade sail a great race with his daughter Imogen to win by a country mile, with Imogen Bellfield and Sarah Ewart Smith from Torpoint Mosquito SC / Itchenor SC heading a large pack in second. Sarah Richards and Douglas Simpson from Royal Lymington YC / Ullswater YC chose the right end of the line to lead the fleet round the course in Race Three with Eleanor Keers showing that a 13 year old can beat the very best adults.

Angus Hemmings and his daughter Florence from Stokes Bay SC lead the fleet after 3 races. With 5 points between 2nd and 8th the regatta is very close. The forecast for the rest of the week is for more wind and less sunshine - you can't have everything!
