It was an awesome day with 7 yachts turning up, numbers down a bit due to the forecast but it was warm and sunny though incompatible to sailing due to the lack of wind – unless you were a powered paraglider.
Phil and John managed a bit of toing and froing but the rest of us barely got a ride despite numerous bouts of optimistic running. A little disappointing as this was the 3rd weekend in a row we’ve been let down by huey.
Despite the lack of sailing it was good to catch up and be forced into having a relaxing day after a busy work week. We headed half a km or so north of the stream to escape the dog walkers and pretty much had the beach to ourselves except for the odd 4WD and motorbike wizzing by.
Phil turned up with a long time friend of his, Hans Andersen – my wife’s cousin – which was a bit of a surprise. It’s a small world.
Between the two of them they brought 3 youngsters who had a great afternoon pushing each other around and eroding the sand dunes. They even got to go in Phil’s C3, albeit slowly, being pushed most of the time, which was a real treat.
We’ll try again in a couple of weeks, fingers crossed!
