The day dawned with brilliant sunshine but a bit too much wind for comfort. While watching the trees bend in the plus 25 knots gusts a message was received announcing the cancellation of todays short handed social distancing race.
As the morning progressed the breeze continued to build and while I will miss the exercise it is possibly wise that the fleet will stay ashore. The wind direction would have made for a beat up the narrow passage between the islands and the Drummoyne shore and even with the No 3 jib that would have been tricky.
Sunday is looking more promising for a practice sail up the same course with the same wind direction but considerably quieter.
