The May Bank Holiday Weekend saw seven PSC yachts make their way to Cherbourg for our second rally of the season. Rally Master Peter Guy had clearly managed to put his school boy French language skills to good effect with the harbourmaster's team and we were provided with excellent berths a short walk from the Capitainerie du Port's office and, more importantly, very close to the bar and restaurant! The highlight of the

It had been intended to start Day Boat Evening racing on Wednesday 2 May, however it has been decided to postpone the start of the series due to the delay in the installation of the crane in the Camber.

Day 1 of the Spring Parhelion Series saw 15 boats ready to race but with a mid-morning low water and light Easterly breezes it proved a testing day for both the Race Officer and competitors with long downwind legs and even a downwind start for Race 1!
