A little run around the harbour

It was a quiet day on the water with only a few boats untying from the yacht club pontoon to head out for a sail.

The harbour is blue again , it was a day of gentle breeze and quite pleasant to be out of the heat and on the water.
                           Solitaire set out to ensure the rig was tight for Championship next week... and found just a wee problem .. it was a quick trip back into dock to fix an missing side stay and a slight lean.
It was all looking good one minute ..

and it was Seaulater the next !

                                                  Intrigue headed out with a youthful crew,


                                                     and after a quick trip around the harbour

they were back ,

                                                      with the girls running the show ..

and home just in front of

                                                                Lex took on the bowman spot

                                           there were smiles on board .. after a rocky start..

they had the boat speed ..

and then it was up to a few dinghies to add a bit of colour
Steve needed another 5 knots of breeze,

                                               Ray was pretty happy with his performance

                                             Barry and Martin  handled the start

Tiarney recovered from a boom buster

                                                                Colleen and Sue took over Herc

Maria was chasing the cobwebs away

and it was back to the dock,
Championship next week.. we might see a crowd !
