100 guests attended the drinks party on Thursday, I think you can say it was really successful and so very kind of Cheryl and Roger to host the event in their lovely garden. Thank goodness it was a dry warm evening.
its been a fantastic week of sailing/socialising, a great highlight of the club and such a delight to have such lovely friendly guests from other divisions join us. Lots of laughter, lots of fun and lots of serious sailing.

Last Saturday Goerge gave a brilliant talk on the racing rules and answered a number of questions that has been troubling people. What resoundingly came out of the talk is that many skippers (experienced ones as well) are making “errors/mistakes” and not owning up to them and doing their spin when they are in the wrong. Perhaps, as a fleet, we might adopt this mindset. We may ask George to do another session later in the season and hopefully more people will attend with lots more scenarios. If anyone would like the slides please let me know.
