B14 Stokes Bay TT-02 2015
The B14 Flying Circus headed to Stokes Bay Sailing Club, venue of the 2015 National Championships for their second TT of the year, and first sailed event, due to Rutland being blown off. The forecast was for gusts in excess of 25 maybe 30 knots on both days, so those travelling further, stayed away as they had an inkling they were in for another Rutland weekend propping up the bar and recounting tales of mad off-roading on bikes and skiing holidays for those that did not go to the Worlds in McCrae Australia
So those that did attend, were treated to flatish water and SW 8 – 15 knots, unlike the promised breeze the heavier bomber command teams had been salivating over and enjoying a hearty week, found they were going to have their hands full with the lighter teams.
