Approaching Mumbles Bay on Thursday July 18 we could see fourteen Bytes away across the water with the late afternoon sun shining on their sails. A perfect sailing afternoon, however this balmy situation was not to continue. The sailors came ashore looking pleased with their two test races and coaching laid on by Mumbles Yacht Club.

Six boats defied the forecast and made it to Mumbles YC for their Open event yesterday and a chance to get some practice ahead of the Nationals next month. It was a Bowmoor 1, 2, 3 with Matt Banbrook winning, Toby Banbrook 2nd in his CI and Will Morris 3rd. Well done to Matthew, David and William from Himley Hall.

16 Bytes made the start line today despite the forecast of little wind. The AP was flown before lunch but we managed to squeeze 3 races back-to-back to complete the full card. Thank you to our visitors for making the effort to travel. Huge congratulations to Emma who starts the season in style with another win. Racing was close throughout the fleet - bodes well for the season ahead.

Dear Byte sailor,

A very quick update from me, though I promise to send a more detailed news letter very soon.  Please note the following key points:

Dear Byte sailor,

I hope this newsletter finds you well and looking forward to the season ahead.  Apologies for the delay since the last update, life and work still have an unpleasant habit of getting in the way of sailing… one day….
