We were blessed with some fine August weather, a sunny day with light winds and no waves as we witnessed the arrival of the STS Tenacious from aboard the Lady Cutler.
I hadn’t previously been on board the Lady Cutler and I was impressed with its fit out and comfort. The opportunity for a glass of wine while watching the accompanying craft was also well received.
Top marks should go to Graham Signorini for his presence to greet the Tenacious in his pedal powered canoe. I first spotted him quite a distance from Breakwater Pier. Greg Blunt was also spotted in his putt putt.
I must thank Penny for arranging the day and Andrew Cohan for alerting us to the opportunity to take part in what was a successful outing for the WBA. Roderick Smith has kindly written his summary of the day for Shavings and this is also much appreciated.
The next club night (September 21) is a talk by Dr Chris Davey about seafaring in ancient times. In particular, he will discuss the science of sailing to windward. So I look forward to seeing you there.
Hanh and I will be away for a month, so I wish you all well and will likely have some unusual stories of are travels when I return.
Cheers for now,
