Mark C is off for a sail this weekend with Ian Ruffles and Denis Johnson. I’m guessing that means the old girl will be out and about, and not available for visiting. I will ask around and see if I can find out any more. Meanwhile here is another of Mark’s excellent pictures, this one with all the sails down but not quite squared away at the end of a sail.
I’m hoping Dave B will furnish us with some kind of a report on his weekend of chasing the Passage Match and then the Pin Mill Match, including stopping off at Ipswich. I have a cracking picture of Decima to use with it (Taken by Dave , of course). I have this taster, though, from Ed Grandsen of Edith May via Facebook. “Highly competitive race yesterday,” posts Ed, “With Melissa and Repertor untouchable in the staysail class with very fresh breeze. We had a grand tussle with Reminder before hunting down Decima at the finish, although needed a bit more time to get by. Won 3rd prize, and 1st over start line, beating Victor by 2seconds! on Edith May Trading Company‘s timeline.” Exciting Stuff, Ed!
