Ullswater Experience, May 28 & 29

Ullswater Experience, May 28 & 29

For the second year running, Paul O’Hara, with the help of other members of the cruiser fleet, held a special weekend to introduce visitors to the basics of cruiser sailing and to show them everything Ullswater Yacht Club has to offer. The nine visitors were teamed up with club members and sailed with them on their boats, and several took part in the club racing over Fleet Weekend.

A total of seven cruisers took part in three races, with the result decided on a tie-break, Ian Priestley in a Beneteau 21.7 and Robin Barratt in and Etap 21 both had a first and a second. But by coming first in the final race, Ian and his crew won overall.

The weather was kind to the visitors with plenty of sunshine and enough wind for a reasonable sail. They also enjoyed the club’s hospitality with a Saturday night meal together. Paul O’Hara thanked all the other members of the cruiser fleet for giving their time to introduce the visitors to sailing and helping to make the weekend such a success.
