Lucky for us, the strong northwesterly which blew all day calmed in the evening and we had very pleasant sailing conditions.
All ages turned up and 22 people set out to sea in cruisers , Wayfarers and Oppies. It was a pleasure seeing our new instructors at work with the very young ones on their first day of work. The smiles on the children said it all.
Some of our bigger guests went on the Wayfarers helmed by Kevin Brennan and Douglas Elmes. Bill McConnell and Dave Marchant tested some new sailors that could come in handy for crewing this season. Many were put through their paces and asked to perform all kind of jobs on the cruisers.
