The Christmas Carols and Tree Decorating was a great success. The choir Soundeclectic were terrific and got the perfect balance between traditional Christmas and newer songs. There were about 60 people mostly members but with several guests. The mulled wine must have hit the spot as it was tough to keep up with demand. We collected for the Union Gospel Mission and I will post the amount we collected once they have counted it.
A good evening of Christmas cheer, meeting with friends, great food and drink and giving back to people in difficulty. I hope this is an annual tradition.
Beautiful day today on the water.
Eleven yachts showed up to race in light air, hopefully filling in from the north.
Seven finished the course with Andre Wojcieszek’s RADICAL DEPARTURE taking both a line honours and corrected time victory over Dave Wilson’s MERLIN. For the rest of our club yachts, NUNNEHI came third, MOONSHADOW III was fourth, and GREY ERIK retired.
