Frostbite 1 – Non-racing report
The SOOD Karen was at the gate to greet the numerous people who arrived to sail or just ‘view’ the water! No sailing, no course to set and sadly no hot soup either!!!! just water, water and more water……
The first up the drive in their dry suits were Dave and big Steve, followed by Ian, Chris, Jon, Newton and Ross, armed with rope and stakes….some boats were not tied down!!!
Curtis smugly drove up the drive with Hugh in his huge Hummer……while Sophie opted for a wetsuit and bicycle as did Brian!
Poor Dave just came for a good sail, the wind was at least force 4, having no idea it had been raining all week!
Those that returned told the waiting voyeurs, Mark, Monica, Bill and a few others, that it was a beautiful sight and only a few of the boats beyond the red shed had water around them.
An email had gone out to the membership, but unfortunately not everyone had seen it.
PLEASE CHECK THE WEB SITE FOR FURTHER INFO RE THE STATE / HEIGHT OF THE WATER.
The next day Mark donned his dry suit and braved the water which came up to his waist…..it is still rising.
WATCH THIS SPACE………….
