Glenridding Sailing Centre
A weekend of extremes in weather. Saturday starting looking fine but by 1 PM it was raining and the wind dropped to almost nothing. While Sunday proved to be a more exciting sail, where we found the need to reef both the main and jib.
Before the rain on Saturday
The weekend was organised by the OGA http://sailinginthelakes.com/ and was based at the Glenridding Sailing Centre, which is at the south end of Ullswater. However, we were the only Drascombe and it would be good to see more boats at the September event. Ullswater is a stunning location to sail and along with a social on the Saturday evening, makes the whole weekend most enjoyable.
