Puffin Island Cruise Saturday 26th March
After a postponement on Easter Saturday, 6 boats braved the blustery conditions on Easter Monday for a thrash around the Bay, according to sailing captain, Steve Gorst, conditions were a gentle force 8 on the Cemaes scale! The wind direction precluded a sail around Puffin Island, so no seal pictures this year. However, see below for a good video of Bob from Comrades helming Myfanwy that Steve took which gives some idea of the conditions.
The Fitting Out party took place on the Saturday evening in the Clubhouse with an Italian themed supper of lasagne and Italian trifle well laced with Amaretto. 12 members enjoyed the supper with many more joining for the music night organised by Mike Harrison. Seemingly bangers and mash would be a more popular choice for supper in the future – noted by the chefs 🙂
The next sailing event is the Shakedown Cruise on May Bank holiday weekend. The details of the event are on the website under sailing events.
