MDM Sponsored Slalom Series event. Unfortunately after much setting of courses & re-setting of courses the MDM Sponsored Slalom event was abandoned due to very light wind coming from all directions and not making up its mind. Optimist Beginners & Intermediates had brilliantly light winds to try master the art of sailing. B – fleet Optimists trained & sailed their own course being the only course to get racing done in very light and switchy winds, and the A Fleet was entered into the MDM Series. For images and more on the MDM see our Facebook page: zeekoevleiyachtclub
Thank you Hylton and the MDM / Raymarine team for an overall, very enjoyable day!
