PINk FLEET OCTOBER 12th.

THE FORECAST WAS POURING RAIN AND LIGHT WINDS, WHAT DID WE GET?  SUNSHINE AND CLOUD WITH LIGHT VARIABLE WINDS –  NO RAIN. PERFECT WEATHER FOR THE INTREPID PINKIES WHO MANAGED TO  GET OUT OF THERE BEDS TO ENJOY ANOTHER GREAT BREAKFAST COOKED BY OUR RESIDENT CHEFS PAUL AND BARBARA, BREAKFAST SO GOOD THEY COULD BE THE NEXT TV MASTER CHEFS.

15 BOATS TOOK TO THE START LINE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAKE. 7P 6P 9S 5P 4P 3S EASY TO REMEMBER WASN’T IT ROBBIE!

PINKIES SEEM TO BE GETTING YOUNGER EVERY MONTH, OR AM I GETTING OLDER! I’M SURE I SAW SOME SAILORS IN ROMPER SUITS OR WAS THAT DAVE  IN HIS ONESY.

GREAT START WITH ALICE,  AS USUAL,  OUT IN FRONT. SHE WAS INSTANTLY DISQUALIFIED FOR DISAPPEARING OVER THE HORIZON.
DAVE PORTUS WAS DISQUALIFIED FOR INTIMIDATION AT BOUY 7, AND CHRIS AND CAROL WERE ALSO RED CARDED FOR HAVING BRAND NEW BRILLIANT WHITE SAILS AND BLINDING THE REST OF THE PINK FLEET.

A VERY ENJOYABLE ONE HOUR RACE. WHO TO GIVE THE OCTOBER PINK FLEET CUP TO? IT HAD TO BE WILLIAM IN HIS TOPPER, SAILING ONE HANDED AND BAILING OUT AS IF HIS LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. WELL DONE WILLIAM.

NEXT PINK FLEET IS NOVEMBER 9TH.  A MUST FOR ALL PINKIES AS WE WILL BE TAKING NAMES FOR THE PINK FLEET CHRISTMAS PARTY ON THE 14TH DECEMBER. PLACES ARE LIMITED AND SO IT WILL BE FIRST COME FIRST SERVED.


well done William, can you put “all finished off with Barbara Moore’s 28th birthday – I think that’s what she said! Wine beer and nibbles for all, a perfect end to Pink Day.
