SOMR 2011

One Week away from the start of SOMR for this year. Wow that has come around quick. Next Friday we will have a set of load cells at HYC for weighing of boats. If you need to weigh your boat or have new sails measured you need to be there Friday. Saturday will be to late.

Last week was the first race for the Summer series at HYC. Only problem was, there wasn't a finish boat?? Where was it you may ask? Well let me tell you..................... Picking "Dads Army" up out of the water. That's right wetsuits not spray jackets were needed as Scadddle flipped over in the fresh 30 kt wester. All crew were rescued successfully and Terry didn't even stop talking. Scadddle was towed back to the dock and bucketed out while George warmed up in the shower.
My arms nearly dropped off before passing the baton to Lisa and Big Tone to finish the job..
