Easter (Egg) Blow Out

As everyone looked forward to a continuance of the barmy spring weather over the Easter break, they were in for a bit of a shock. The airs cooled on Friday, increased on Saturday, eased a little on Sunday, and brought in rain on Monday!

White horses ruled the waves on Sunday morning to such an extent that seven keen sailors would only go out in club boats (viz Toppers), the GP element enjoyed it so much that they did the same again on Sunday afternoon!

Despite Sunday’s miserable start, there was a good turnout across the fleets to compete for the weekend series.

Bridget’s Diary:
Sunday – What a breeze! All I could see was white water coming in from the direction of Siberia. But the GP lads decided to test their skills in Toppers, and William went too (in his shorts!?)- If only he’d left his camera out ‘cos when he came ashore (after being for a little swim) his legs were glowing. This didn’t stop him dragging me out screaming in the afternoon for my first sail in a Flying 15. And the screaming didn’t stop there! – I reassured him that all the words I was using were in the French dictionary. Also, I told him that I’d prefer to go on Megaphobia blindfold rather than sail with him again. Even so, it was great fun.
