A wet afternoon but there was wind, which was good. We had been warned that a submarine was due at 3 o’clock, our start time. There was no submarine then, but various smaller vessels with blue flashing lights. We decided to delay, which benefitted Thalia who took time to recover a halyard which had been lost up the mast.
After the submarine had passed, we were able to sail a course across the loch, beginning with a leg to windward to B, off Silvers. There was an element of luck in choosing the best way to get there, wind was both changeable and different in different parts of the Loch. It was a similar story going downwind to Shandon and then upwind to Clynder. The final leg, a reach to the finish was predictable. There was no second round, which was fortunate as wind died away.
