The Comets are Coming , Hurrah, Hurrah!

I missed the exciting winds last week and several people are now challenging me in the capsize stakes!
This week promised to be very tame, but turned out to be a quite lively , if rather perverse, wind in warm sunshine. So a great afternoon for the 15 boats that sailed and some very interesting races. I even managed to win one, helped by my super-lightweight crew, Jonah.
The big news this week is two more Comets (Duo's). I think we now have 4 Comets, 3 Duos and a Versa, though I expect to be corrected on these details. Getting to be real fleet. I spotted an old notice board someone had made for a Comet Open Meeting at SVSC - maybe it'll come in handy again!
Less than a month now 'til Push The Boat Out. Tell people about it and encourage them to come along and have a go. Mark 20th May in your diaries and BE HERE. If you've not got a specific job, get a boat on the water sailing and/or chat to visitors and make sure they see what a nice friendly bunch we are.
