The best weather we could wish for was here today. Blue skies, south westerly breezes at about 6 knots, and a temperature growing to 23 degrees were all that could be desired.

Of course, the helpers got there early and all the boats were out, rigged and ready well before 9.30. when our participants started to arrive.
