Junior sailing in Coffin Bay on Sunday saw seven juniors tackle the learn to sail program.

The day started with very little breeze but eventually filled nicely for all to practice tacking skills.

Three 125s and one Heron took to the water in the afternoon. The light breeze of around 8 to 12 knots brought a challenging day for all.

Racing was close for the 125s with only seconds dividing the fleet.

A few 125s had issues with lowering the kite and sailed extra distance with one also doing circles.

Junior sail training continues on Sunday, November 17 at 9.30am. Racing will be out in Kellidie in the afternoon for the seniors.
