RYA sail for gold

Yet another busy weekend at the club, but with some sunshine …what a bonus! But no wind……Mark, Paula, Sally and their team of helpers organised an afternoon of fun – Sailing for Gold – with some 60+ people having fun, doing relay races, a lot of paddling and inevitably a lot of ‘swimming!!’ The lack of wind, didn’t seem to deter everyone’s enthusiasm, with the winning blue team each receiving their medals. The deck was suitably decorated with balloons and bunting and there was a great Olympic style atmosphere, culminating in a delicious BBQ – Barbara was again busy in the galley during all the outside activities. The ‘ ide hards’ were seen on the deck finishing their wine and beer and reflecting on another great day with the sun setting in the back ground. Well done and many thanks to everyone who made the day such a sucess.
Meanwhile the ladies had a day of coaching with Simon from the RYA – a challenge in the almost windless conditions. But we did manage to learn how to sail a boat without a rudder, and do some starting practice in the afternoon. Everyone learned something from the sessions on shore and the fluky winds on the lake – thank you Simon.
