Intrepid sailors were defeated by the conditions at our annual RNLI Pursuit Race on Sunday November 12th! Despite a forecast of strong winds a good number of sailors turned up to sail the annual fundraiser. At first it seemed as if the wind had moderated, but even so the Cat sailors showed their innate caution and none rigged. Foolhardy monohull racers did and the race officer started the race. As squally and gusty conditions continued (see video clip) some decided that discretion was the better part of valour and stayed on terra firma.
