Following successful bonfire night celebrations for which the daytime rain clouds parted for long enough to enjoy the bonfire and fireworks display, Sunday’s forecast was not at all encouraging (sustained winds in excess of 50mph).
A few sailors turned up, with Poppy being the most enthusiastic, but it was too wet and blustery to tempt anyone to even prepare their boat, so the OD was not slow in declaring the abandonment for the day.
Perhaps next weeks conditions will be perfect?!
NB. A couple of boats were blown over in the gusts, and some were rocking. Also, the lake has risen substantially over the last 24 hours, and at risk of rising more after further rain, so it would be worth checking sure your boat is still secure, on high enough ground, and not at risk of being damaged.
