Sat. Sept. 12 Racing

After a cool morning, the sun warmed things up and a gentle breeze appeared to be blowing from the West when we set the course, but winds are never so simple on Falcon… A north wind came in gusts to mix it up with the west gusts, and unfortunately the course was set a little close to the north shore, so the favoured side of the course had dead spots. We ran five short races, each one a unique combination of gusts and quiet moments…

Saturday Sept 5 Racing

Variable winds, mostly from the west and a lovely fall temperature set the stage for races where picking the right side of the course made the difference. Fearing this might be one of the last days suitable for dinghy sailing, we had 5 races:
