Pictures and words from Mike Brain
The first race was Wet! Wet! Wet! – I think the sailors were barking mad to go out – still they seemed to enjoy ( strange folk). After the terrific lunch served in the Club House by Steve & Sharon Locke, and enjoyed by all, the conditions for the second race were much better, with a fair wind from the North west- almost straight down the lake, and a really good sail was had with only one Capsize (Paul of course).
Taking part, in Solos were Hugh, Rob, Steve and Nick with Paul in his Laser and Andy in his Pico. Afternoon, New members Matt Perring & Kate Ives took the Wayfarer out for an airing.
My Thanks to Ellen & Bridie Dimelow & Tim Rouse who, to get some experience of the safety boats and procedures assisted Mike Fountain & I as OOD s , and apart from the weather,I think they quite enjoyed the day.
A super days sailing but the accolades go to Sharon and Steve Locke for the fantastic spread which they put on for lunch. Well done to both of them.
