Sailing Report – Helen Martin, Vice Commodore
There was so much wind on Sunday that general sailing and racing was cancelled. To take full advantage of the coach being at the club, the Fevas did manage a short soggy time on the water in the relative shelter in front of the club house, 2 boats and 2 ribs and they were all pretty busy!
A contrast on Wednesday with a nice steady breeze and once again the grey, rain and drizzle did not deter the stalwarts.
