Christmas breakup sailing

Yesterday was our pre-Christmas sailing event.


With the weather into the high 30C range it affected the attendance but did not diminish the fun.

We had three plywoods boats out on the water and it was interesting to see how each (all different models) performed in single leg match events.

As always the theme was of a Christmas one and decorated boats, and skippers,  were the norm.

Crossbones' "Skye" schooner



Ecka's Sloop "Anna"


My Fast Cargo schooner "Tessa 2"

Why I appreciate having others along


And yes, the ol' Nemo hard at it

Because hot summers are likely to persist, or worsen, we will not be doing this event again, but instead run a similar "End of Season" celebration event when we are into the start of winter and much cooler conditions.
