Snow and Sun

Early Sunday morning the Tarn was sprinkled with snow !

By the time the hardy ( or mad ! ) frostbiters took to the water the snow was all but gone and there was bright sunshine.
This was excellent for taking photos and walking around the Tarn, but it was bitter out on the water in the gusty wind blowing across the Tarn. 12 boats were out for the first race and 7 made it out again for the race after lunch and there was even the rare sight of a capsized Bill at one point !

John and Felix were OODs for the day, and kept the spectators interested and the competitors on their toes, while Don helped out whenever anyone needed the safety boat.

The frostbite series runs every Sunday up to the 14th December, with races at 12.00 and 2.00.
So come on down, either to sail or join the many, less hardy spectators watching from the side !

Don’t forget this week it is the AGM on Thursday night and the Laying Up Supper on Saturday night, see you there !
