On a fine sunny day and perfect weather for the idyllic Isleworth course a fleet of 8 boats gathered. We welcomed Tim Wellburn for his first sail at SGSC in an Enterprise crewed by his brother. Kew bridge was navigated perfectly and safely by the whole fleet under the shepherding of Tim in the safety boat. The fleet set off into a light breeze and there were shouts of Starboard on a congested line. Alex timed his run to the line perfectly and took a 50 yard lead. Slowly the Enterprises and Laser reeled him in on the beat but there was great anticipation from the bank that the long run home would favour the 14ft flyer. It was not to be although close with Robert and Lucy taking the bullet with John in the Laser close behind but the consistently sailed Gull in the capable hands of Lev was not far behind.
