Saturday 1st

preparationsFriday was a busy day setting up camping for the next 9 days, and meeting old friends. How many people will be threatening to stop drinking already? The weather was kind until the night when the watertightness of the tents was tested somewhat!

Saturday has arrived and it is bright and sunny – a good time to set up boats in time for the start of racing this afternoon. Plenty of wind was forecast, and it wasn’t wrong! Great winds, and sunshine, led to numerous capsizes, and a few collisions! (Not the best way to start the regatta). Who could ask for better conditions? So there are two races complete after lots of clean starts. Long may it continue!

This evening’s entertainment will be the Commodore’s reception followed by a disco
