Clean Sweep For Williams Brothers At 405 Splash

The Gunfleet Sailing Club was kept busy on Sunday 25 September when it held the Hobie 405 Splash, with three races spread over the day.  Seven 405’s took part, the craft being specifically designed as youth development boats with a trapeze for the crew and an impressive asymmetric spinnaker.  Large waves and a force 5 to 6 west/south-westerly wind meant it was going to be both a lively and very wet sail.

Yvonne Takes The Top Place In Lively Conditions

Gunfleet Sailing Club members braced themselves for a lively sail last Sunday morning, with winds blowing force 5 gusting 6, as they prepared their dinghies for the first race in the Autumn Series.  The west/south-westerly winds brought some strong gusts as the competitors beat down the coast against an ebbing tide.  Conor and Finlay Williams lead at the start in their 405, followed closely by Yvonne Gough in her Laser.  Once round the first mark, the Eastcliff buoy, it was an exhilarating reach out to Seaward, the gybe mark, and this manoeuvre caught several sailors out.
