Update from Bass

A number of sailors, families and friends old and new have made their annual trip to Bassenthwaite for the annual regatta week.

Showers welcomed us on Friday as we set up camp, but the bar was welcoming, too welcoming for some, but that’s another story !

Saturday was windy which woke everybody up as they found their way round the lake (apart from mark 6 which had no wind at all), whereas Sunday was lighter but sunny and rather nice.

Sunday was also Quiz night and “we was robbed !” Despite bringing in help from the Blackpool seaside Streaker sailors, Stuart and Alan, Yeadon couldn’t repeat their form of previous years. With a specialist round of ‘Harry Potter’ we knew it was going to be difficult and so it proved ! Luckily for us the final results weren’t published.

Monday we had the traditional ‘Round the Lake’ race, which was good fun, especially when, the Laser, Medium Handicap and Enterprise fleets all combined at mark 14 ! Conflicting cries of “No Water” and “Water for Ten” were often heard.

Despite trying very hard ( Clive’s words ) Yeadon haven’t made it into the prizes yet, but there are still quite a few races to go !
