Day 1 for the 420's and Opti DBYC Sailors saw very windy conditions. The Opti sailors were challenged with VERY big seas and were lucky enough to get their two prescribed races in, whilst the 420's were held ashore. Our 470 sailors (Day 3) were also held ashore, where plenty of socialising occurred. The DBYC family pulled together to support our own DBYC Opti Sailor, Karl Skoglund, who took a nasty wack to the head from his boom, and was taken to hospital by ambulance. Thankfully Karl will be ok!
