The day was bright, the wind was fresh and the temperature was +4 or thereabouts. The initial reaction was “what are we doing here” but with suitable clothing a good time appeared to be had by everyone. The wind was from the North West which meant a long course along the South bank. However with the strength of the wind and encouragement from the Duty officer 8 races were completed.
Thanks to Phil H for keeping things moving under difficult circumstances. The start box battery connector had failed and Phil was doing a manual (vocal ?) countdown.
