SP8609 : Points Race at Weston Turville Reservoir

taken 9 years ago, near to Halton, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

Points Race at Weston Turville Reservoir
Points Race at Weston Turville Reservoir
The third and final race of the day for Aylesbury Sailing Club at Weston Turville Reservoir. This is a "points" race where all the dinghies start at the same time, and all fourteen participating boats are seen here negotiating the first buoy in an anticlockwise direction.
The dinghies seen here are GP14s (bell on sail), Comets (orange comet), Solos (stylised S shape), a Laser (3rd from right with a *--) and I think the red sails belong to a Laser Pico. Finally, with blue sails, almost hidden by the Solo on the left is an Enterprise.
