It was an interesting day on the water;
Tim Williams had his farewell sail on the helm of Intriigue,
Solitaire experienced steering issues
which gave us an unsolicited couple of crew shots !
Clare took a few lovely shots of Tim skippering Intriigue for the records ...
the apprentices were out doing a superb job this week!
.. and to top it off Santa made a visit on Sunday,
bringing Fresh Food choices of Carrot sticks, celery and pickled onions!! ODD!
I think we got the Reindeer basket!
and not much else for the Christmas party !!
😉Lets hope all those memberships come in next year...
so we can have Roast chicken and dessert again!
Saturday sailing proved a talking point on Sunday ... weather was light ,
barely a wave, which made it great conditions
for the lighter weighted amongst the Impulse sailors.
Rob had son David on board for a cruise on Solitaire .. lucky he had a camera!\
Restless found cruising blues
.... stealthily.. the attack came broadside
and don't give us that " I'm just a simple pig farmer story" ... WE know !!
Fleur De Lis came past
busily on her way around the island...
while on Solitaire Steve seemed a bit concerned..
while Rob waggled the tiller back and forth
..,amongst the dinghy sailors ...Naomi
Meanwhile Ray was rock in and roll in to catch Carli ...
Naomi played it cool..
Naomi was well in front ...
and if that doesn't work ....
here comes a drama piece ...
.. and look who was crewing for Clare ...
Tim,Tony and Tiernan..
Tough act to follow ...
but along came Restless
and now ...what did happen to Solitaire ?
in deference to Jo, we won't show photo 1
as Rob dives to make Rudder repairs
a bit of fun processing the harbour traffic when sailing got a little dull!
Sunday saw a small team at the club ...
and finally a farewell to Tim Williams ..
see you around at regattas etc Tim.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all .
