Gareloch OD Race Report 18th Sept 18
Some people cannot make the earlier starts on Tuesdays in September. On this evening, Dione and Teal were absent. The on the water Race Officer set a course which should have given a couple of legs to windward. As often happens in the Gareloch, direction of wind changed after we set off which left a course characterised by fetches and reaches. There was still a challenge to get to the marks on the Clynder shore, on account of variable strength and direction of air near to the side of the loch. A couple of Royal Navy warships were very kind to us and were patient with our slow progress to and fro across the loch.
