Windy Weekend

Very windy both Saturday and Sunday, but the weather was much drier than forecast. Possibly because of the forecast, not much of a turn out for open house day, and rough conditions for taking people out for a sail, but we managed to give a few people a thrilling sailing experience.

On shore hospitality was awesome, thanks to Debbie and Brian Woods.

Saturday BBQ was also delightful, with a workable combination of wind and mosquitoes! Great chance to visit, good food, and excellent atmosphere.

The keel boat race on Sunday had to be cancelled because winds were gusting over 20 knots.

Hopefully next Friday, Canada Day, weather conditions will allow us to run the first dinghy race.
