Last night’s guide to the rules talk with panel Q&A session was especially well attended last night after Commodore Andy Smith, with a bit of help from Mike Moore (RYA NW area chairman) was able to coerce Olympic Champion Ben Ainslie to make a return visit to the club (His last visit was when Bassenthwaite hosted the Optimist Nationals!).
Despite best efforts, Mike was unable to ask any questions that Ben couldn’t answer with confidence (and accuracy we assume!).
In the Bass tradition, Ben stayed back for a few drinks with the lads. Tog was in his element!
Camping does not seem to be his favourite pastime, but when needs must… So Ben will be around for the rest of the morning.
