Yare SC have a Cruiser Race on Saturday from Horning to Thurne, and on Sunday Snowflakes have a Yeoman Open and Buckenham start their Winter Open series every Sunday until December 15. The next sailing date is Sunday, November 17, when Frostbites hold their 80th anniversary Open meeting, all dinghies welcome, and Snowflakes a Keelboat Open.
Forty one boats, ranging from Cruisers down to a Laser, started the Tri-Icicle race in slightly unpromising conditions.
The nine Cruisers which contested the Funnell Trophy at NBYC’s final Open of the year met in mixed conditions.
There were very light winds on Saturday and blustery, wet conditions on Sunday and this discouraged many sailors from competing at Oulton Broad at the weekend.
