It was another race day, and I expected to arrive to a hustle and bustle,
to the sounds of chattering voices, the groans and whipping of wire rigging; the
bright colours of lifejackets, rashy sun suits and sailing hats......
Was it raining?
NO! though it did look a little like this!
It must be almost Christmas!
Maybe everyone was shopping?, gear failure? , too windy? too tired?, too hungover?
Luckily some members of the PCSC were there..
The starting crowd
the have fun in Herc duo of Maria and Dave.
the keen Impulse sailors
who don't mind a bit of spray in the face!
while I make it look artistic!
into the sun..
Lucky Miss Behaviour turned up!
.. they did get past that buoy!
with Dirk and Brandon to assist
it was a balancing act!
a day for the brave!
wet sheets, bow to the wind,
steering on uneven keel..
a win at the start.. and line honours a certainty!
.... against the wind
and crashing waves
dinghy sailors braved it too
one lonely Pacer
racing cause he's late!
Morgan held her ground
careful on the gybes
testing new sails
into the white caps
a few challenges
traversing the harbour
amongst the best
chasing them down
enough for me.. I'm out of here!
