237) Event News: TT at Draycote Water Sailing Club - Race Report
(Article Published: 14th January 2009 at 10:14 am)

We knew that the forecast was going to be cold. Some correspondence on the Sprint 15 website confirmed there was no ice formed on the lake the preceding week, but even this didn?t quite do justice to how cold it felt once we all had de iced and rigged and got onto the water. [Pouring some water over my inspection hatch covers to break the seal before launching was a mistake as it just froze on the hulls.] more..

239) Event News: TT at Carsington Sailing Club - Race Report
(Article Published: 10th December 2008 at 12:27 pm)

The 2008 Sprint 15 Northern TT at Carsington Water on 6th December promised to be an interesting event. After a season of dull and wet sailing days, the sun shone out of a cloudless sky as eleven travellers joined four local boats in scraping the ice off hulls, covers and trailers. Although the 20kt gusts previously forecast by Windguru were nowhere to be seen, ten knots was reported at the start line in the morning so the conditions were set to be fair, if not hectic. Races were held back to back for the benefit of long distance travellers and this allowed those of advancing years to get onto the water in time to reach the start of the first race (which was a little later than originally planned). Others looked forward to the extra time afforded for packing away and time also for socialising over mince pies and mulled wine provided in the clubhouse after sailing. more..
