Today Swansea Model Yacht Club ran the first leg of the Zulu Cup.  At the lake a cold easterly wind fluctuated madly.  The conditions were tricky with all boats on an A rig but occasionally there were some strong gusts which came across the lake like a bowling ball knocking the fleet down like ten pins.    The racing was predominantly close.  However, some skippers did manage a flier on the first beats to eek out some comfortable victories during the 10 race series, perhaps we would have ran another couple races if Ian's performance was better!
Although, I think all the skippers enjoyed the course and conditions and it was especially pleasing to see Dave H and Nigel doing so well.
