What was memorable about today? First of all, deafening thunder and lightning flashing across the sky for seconds at a time. Then there was the very high tide which ensured that all of the sailors got their feet wet when walking across the ramp hinge. Next was the beautiful blue sky that took over from the thunder and lightning, and the strong breeze that sprang up out of the South, just when we had were about to finish sailing for the day.

Our extraordinary team today consisted of our
Inimical Sailing Coordinator: Malcolm who kept the day wonderfully under control.
We had Ken, then Warwick, then John W in Charlie’s Chariot.
