We started out with a really light breeze this morning, so much so that the paddles had to come out to get across the ferry lane to find enough wind to sail. This only lasted a few minutes and was soon a perfect level for some fun sailing for our participants: David, who was down for the first time and loved every minute, Adonis, Luke, Vanessa, Emily, Tamara from Sunnyfield, then Elias, Oliver, Kath, Jimmy, John, Leesa, from Unissson St Ives. Then we had Alex, David, Kerry, David, Chris and Stuart from Achieve. Last of all, David, Stefan, Nina, Paul, Colin and Denis arrived from House With No Steps. We are very thankful to the helpers from these groups, who helped as much as possible to make the morning run smoothly. Unfortunately, the wind came up beyond our safety limit, so we had to call a halt before everyone got a turn sailing.
