The series of the Ancient Mariner, Garelochs racing on Tuesday evenings in September with a start at 6, has been well supported.
This evening, the Gareloch was at its scenic best although we were not troubled by an excess of wind.
On the water Race Officer Peter Proctor selected a short course to A, off the club, and back. He chose well. We all finished and, with no leg across the loch, avoided being caught out by strong tide.
Progress depended on skill (or luck) in finding the best air, concentration and amount of growth below the water line.
