Race Report & Results
Sunday 6th March saw a return to sailing with Icebreaker races 1 and 2. It was a lovely spring day,
with a fairly steady force 3 occasionally gusting 4 east wind. Inevitably this meant it was quite shifty
and as usual Llyn Brenig felt degrees colder than elsewhere! Andy Davey (supernova) and Ben
Beachell (solo) did a short 2 lap first race on a simple triangular course utilising the full width of the
lake for a beat (6), a broad reach/run (D) and a fetch back to the start (A). Andy caught Ben at 2 laps
so took the win on handicap. Andrew Roberts (contender) rigged up for the second race, again run as
a 50 minute pursuit on the same course. It didn’t take Andrew long to catch the other two and
comfortably take the win. With enough breeze Andrew could take advantage of the trapeze, but the
wind shifts kept him on his toes! Ben held off Andy for the first 2 laps, but a better course choice by
Andy on the 3rd beat saw him overtake and comfortably take 2nd place.
