Perfect sailing conditions, blue sky, not a cloud in sight, offshore breeze, warm but not hot, bridge café open and lots flowing of….. what do you call that red stuff?
Now the interesting bit. Several capsizes. The Bird rescue boat ….to the rescue…first ‘real’ time…..Louise to the the rescue as well. The entertainment on my bridge was just great!
Two safety boats were in use all day to keep everyone safe, and everyone was of course fine. Good to see a well prepared team out on the water taking care of everyone.
At the end of the day we had some very tired crew, including two great 20-year olds, who also got very involved, and learnt a lot.
Very big thanks to my team. Fernando never stopped…what would we do without him? Karen, James, and all the others, too many to name, but all joined in, rigged, sailed, capsized, rescued and derigged,…..and had a great time!
