What a perfect morning for our last General sailing for the year, and our Christmas Party to wish all of our volunteers and participants a Happy Christmas and a great New Year. To celebrate the end of the year, we all got together down at our venue, and wished each other all the best by going for a sail in what are borderline conditions for sailing, and all thoroughly enjoyed the experience of getting wet and wind-blown, and then feasting on a beautiful lunch provided by Helen and Wilma.

Our incomparable team for today consisted of Sailing Coordinator, Ragnhild,

Support Boat Driver, Warwick.

Observer and photographer, Nola.

Radio: Tony.

Sailors: Denis, Rob, Jennie, Mal, John, David W and David G.

Pontoon Manager, Nikki.

Help on the pontoon, Helene and Oliver.

Help on the deck, Alan, and new volunteer, Emily.

What a well organised, super tem this was.

We managed to take:

Fin, Beau, Tess, Ash, sailing and for a ride on the support boat with Grandad, Warwick.

Susie, Juliette, Tom, Margaret with David.

Danny, Elinor, Rodney, and Mark from Rap’n’Rave, with helper Carl.
