Weather girl Sian Welby’s forecast had been sea miles better that of Mr Fishes 1987 faux pax, and with the predicted North Easterly fanning though the gap between two promontories, near ideal conditions prevailed for the 15 strong contingents. Ideal that is apart from the overcast sky and occasional drizzly douche. Who would have thought that in a day or two it would be Spring.Whilst the assembled group of Radio Sailors prepared their yachts, Alan Smedley and Colin Davies lay and set a course the local W.I. crochet group would have been proud of. Enter 2 enthusiastic sailors but only one boat. In the good hearted spirit that describes the Wee Nip class, a diplomatic solution was agreed that topped any made in Westminster. Luke Fisher and Rob Bell would share a borrowed Wee Nip and in return would take turn about to record the results.
I will not bore you with everyone’s placing as you can read yours below; suffice to say that a good day was had by all. True there was the occasional gear failure but tuning and fettling boats is what we do. The important thing is that you enjoyed your visit to Emberton and that collectively we were able to give £108.60 to people less fortunate than we lucky nippers.
