CBYA DAY Charter Report – Monday 25th November


This was another really super day’s sailing, with good company, good weather and GREAT challenging winds.

In fact, the whole day proved quite ‘Challenging’!!

We all met as normal 10am at Bar Due. Due to a great response, we had nine crew members for this trip. Possibly at least two too many in truth, so a lesson learnt there. (Please note numbers may need to be restricted in the future.)
