Edinburgh University hosted the 2nd sss event in the series, represented by 4 ambitious teams on the 27th-28th of February. The friday night before the racing commenced on the saturday saw visiting and hosting teams take on three sisters then onto shanghai where the Edinburgh girls showed off their incredible dancing skills whilst many made good friends with the visiting teams. Saturday started with wind,wind,wind and everyone hid inside eating Frans legendary toasties, they also cured many hangovers that morning. Racing was cancelled early on and the teams explored Edinburgh and got to witness some of its hidden gems. Aberdeen university stormed the castle whilst Glasgow university bevved. Poor Edinburgh university were worse for the were from the previous night so napped and watched mamma mia. Saturday night started with team dress ups, theme, what I wanted to be when I was younger. The Strathclyde princesses were a sight for sore eyes in Hive where all teams seshed, hard. On sunday we managed to get in a few hours of sailing, we had a good breeze which allowed the race committee to storm through some races. The Edinburgh teams triumphed with its Blue and Green team making it into the top 4. The Edinburgh Puce and White teams held their own in their pools with a few great wins. Yet again Frans toasties were popular even if strathclyde brought their own toastie maker. Great weekend had by all and Edinburgh university Sailing club held an incredible event.
The wind continued to play havoc with the third league weekend, leaving some very unhappy sailors land locked all weekend. This meant that while there was no sailing, both Edinburgh Blue and Edinburgh Green made it straight through to BUSA Finals hosted in Glasgow later this year! Keep an eye out to see how their training goes!
