Due to the forecast for Sunday 1st October it was decided to run the second race on Saturday 30th September. Only two yachts managed to get crew at this short notice and Just Enough disappeared into the marina to allow Phil to dive and scrub the bottom after the performance issue last week.

As we approach the end of the traditional season here at Holyhead we are organising the second of our winter series cruiser races. The club will also be organising the usual dinghy races over the winter. Please encourage all your skipper colleagues to sign up and join in.
Input from Cogger: Dinghy racing Starts 7th Oct 12:00 start 4 races, back to back
Last year we had some fantastic weather for sailing with only 3 Sundays missed due to inclement weather.It now looks like the Offshores will be racing on Sundays with anticipated start time of 14:00 to run for around 2 - 3 hours. It would be great if the various skippers would sign up their yachts so that we have a better idea of who will be joining in this year.
As the club moorings are not available over the period from the end of October through to the end of March next year we will be berthing our participating yachts in Holyhead Marina.
So far we have interest from:
- Pipedreamer VI
- Just Enough
