Evening to you all.
Firstly, it was good to hear that several members had used the lake, at various times through the past week and all reported having a good time.
The Sunday crew had a visit from Simon Clarke ( a past member) who was keen to find out what is going on at the revamped CMYC and seemed impressed in what is happening and what is being planned.
Those who were present also got to sail his “Britpop” and “Grey hound” to compare against their own yachts and set up.
Today, 9 members turned up with 8 IOMs and a DF65.
The brisk wind set the scene for “B” rigs and some very enjoyable sailing was experienced (especially controlling the affects of the gusts).
The break for lunch proved to be a cosy sneeze in the caravan but was a welcome break from the chill from the wind.
The “Yellow submarine” was returned to the water, having been recovered, dried out and electronics stripped and replaced.
It does not seem to be any the worse, for its time on the bottom of the lake.
All being well, it will be taking part in the MYA district event at Sedgemoor on Sunday.
The day drew to a close with the final skippers departing a little after 5pm.
Next week sees the next of the IOM “Winter” series starting at 1pm but please feel free to join in for “Social” sailing.
If you can not wait until then, Woodspring MSC will be holding its next IOM “Winter” series on Sunday, at Portishead Esplanade, starting at 10am. Guests are welcome.
