Raceboarding on a pond any good?

Budworth Sailing Club is located in Cheshire. We sail on a small pond about 1km long and 1/2 km wide and is partially surrounded by trees. It doesn’t sound much of a windsurfers paradise but if you ignore the lack of surf and tide it is brilliant for tactical raceboarding and having fun.

Tuesday evening the lake is ours to sail on. There are plenty of permanent buoys on the water so the race officer can set a competitive course making the most of the wind direction. With the lake being quite small compared to open water there are plenty of tactical decisions to be made and your mark rounding will improve in no time due to the multitude you have to round in a typical race.

From the start a long, but equal, beat allowed some sizable gaps to appear. Sometimes the sheer strength of the wind overpowered all but the strongest and heaviest. The subsequent run and next beat was followed by a good planing reach, before a gybe mark caused many casualties. While many succeeded, the three flights of single handed, handicap and Juniors were now split in half. Just nine boats survived to end race 1. [read more...]
