Wet wet wet

With apologies to those who went out let alone sailing last Saturday in Sydney, it was wet. As one friend mentioned, it was probably the wettest day on the harbour in quite some time. I think it was the eighth day in a row of rain in Sydney, wettest June for 6 years.

I was once more out on The Sound, this time my first for some time at Middle Harbour Yacht Clubs Winter Series. With a handfull of intrepid sailors, our regular team attempted to stay dry however with a few more anchor winch issues, not quite. The breeze did co-operate however and we had a reasonably steady 10knots for most of the day and they all got around the full course.

Hopefully the coming weeks will improve.019044
