Despite the forecast of Thunder Storms, Rain & Hailstones as big as chook eggs ? the day turned out to be just about perfect, with a 10-15 Kts South Easterly, blue skies, 8 Yachts, 16 members, 1 hairy Jack Russell and a visitor or two

The usual 6 Races were contested with yachts dropping out with a a multitude of problems that only 3 boats could take to the water in the last race

Some of the problems to arise were for example  "F*#!">Winch won`t work" ? "Intermittent Binding,

All in all a great social day with lots of the usual Laughter etc
