A forecast for very little wind did not deter 7 Lasers, 2 Mirrors and 8 Enterprises from entering Penzance Sailing Club’s 2016 Laser/Mirror/Enterprise Open
The racing was due to start at 11 am with three races back to back
The Race Officer Mike Winiberg had unenviable job of organising the course in sporadic wind and huge wind shifts. However, in the end with postponements he managed to organise two enjoyable races for the competitors
Many thanks to all the volunteers that enabled the day to run smoothly and to all the competitors that travelled from as far away as Devon and Dorset to compete
A special mention to Penzance junior sailor Lloyd Williams who stepped in to sail at the very last moment with Plymouth Enterprise helm Billy Bartlett and huge congratulations to Penzance Sailing Club’s Thomas Kliskey and Jeremy Stephens who won the Enterprise Open.
