This morning the weather was definitely on our side, except for a remarkable shortage of any breeze at all for most of the day….at least until we started to pack up at the end of the morning.
We decided to rig just 4 boats, as we were not expecting many participants because of the showers scattering in adjoining suburbs, and have some volunteer practise sailing for our sailors who feel they need it. Also, we had a brand new volunteer this morning, Joe, who welcomed the new experience of sailing. Starting the day with just 9 volunteers, 4 boats seemed enough.
However, as the morning crept on, more volunteers arrived, and we also had a few more participants than expected, so 2 more boats were rigged, and well used.
Total number of volunteers was 15, and participant sailors numbered 10.
Volunteers: John W, John B, John P and Jon S, Peter, Ken, Helen, Corey, Jim, Eli, Michael, Jackie, Joe, David, Francois.
Participants: Aruma; Eddie, James, Kyle, with Wayne and Denise helping.
BIRDS; Stuart, Danielle, Stephen, Graham, Alan, Brad, Carlo, with Lucy, Amanda, and Jenny helping.
