A light NWerly greeted Saturday sailors at our temporary base in nearby Denholme, with temperatures enabling a dip in the water in a wetsuit which is what young people seem to like to do!!!. As Sue Lamb was absent from the first half of the day, away looking at boats with Steve Davison, Henry Goodman was in charge of proceedings which included lots of paddleboarding, using the asymmetric spinnaker on the Hartley 12, trialling a Topper Magno and a rigged Laser just in case.
After a break for tea, proceedings resumed with Denis Hopley and Paul Hoyland in the safety boat, John Lamb and George Carter making sure all went well on shore which included chatting with cycling visitors Robin Boardman and Dave Walker. Windsurfer Nick Fenn also took to the water in a dinghy as it certainly wasn’t windsurfing weather.
Henry, Sue and John would like to thank the Saturday people for the lovely presents and cards – the cat now resides beside the fire as cats usually do! There will be no Saturday sailing next week but weather permitting there will be sailing on the following two Saturdays. Bring warm gear!!
