Gunfleet Sailing Club held some exciting sailing last Sunday 11 April 2021 when it staged one of its special “3 in 1” races for the Hertford County Shield. The event consists of three back to back races, over a short course, with all three results counting towards the overall positions. The bright sunshine was deceiving as a cold offshore wind, varying from force three to force five, blew over the top of the cliff, and the competitors made a fine sight as they bunched together in readiness for the first race.
Gunfleet Sailing Club welcomed an enthusiastic group of sailors on Easter Sunday in the first race of the 2021 season, for the March Hare Trophy, postponed from the previous Sunday due to the Covid restrictions. After a very exciting battle on the water it was Andy Cornforth that claimed victory, in his Laser, by just one second.
