This is the first Open Race of the season on Sunday the 4th of May. Eight craft took to the water, and the race took a course set out off Penmaenmawr and taking in buoy placed half way between Penmaenmawr and Puffin Island. The challenging sea conditions with some very deep toughs and gusty winds, created an enjoyable handicapped race between the crafts of very different capabilities.
