Sunday slalom

Just back through the door after a top afternoon's racing near Poole. The turn-out was very good and I was pleased to meet a host of people who hadn't been to Poole Slalom before including Mandy, Sarah, Brett, Brendon and Sam to name a few. The order of the day was 3 buoy downwind slalom with the two outer marks set far out and very broad. The wind was cross-shore, about 15-18 knots, and the fleet were on anything from 5.4m wave to 9m race sails.
