Video: Start of the first race of the Id Crook Memorial Snipe World Masters. It was a difficult day with the wind up and down. Start of the first race was about 12 knots. The second race was shortened because the wind was stronger and the gust were very strong, strongest gust I recorded was 22 knots. 3 boats capsized, but all were ok. Ended the day with beer and food!
