Smack Race

We have had a lovely weekend. Saturday was a big day for the sailing club, it was our annual Smack and Classic Yacht Race. As Commodore I was part of the race committee and had a great day out on the water. The sun was shining and the wind was, for once, in the right direction and the right strength for a great race.

This is Sunbeam, a local smack, taken just before the race started.

These two hardened sailors are also members of the race committee. We even feed them and water them!!

Another local smack, Charlotte Ellen, had their launching party back at the hard. Free beer and champagne, accompanied by a jazz band was a perfect end to the race. Back to the club and even more beer, food and music til late at night. Well done to all sailors and helpers.

Not sure about the hangover the next day though!!!!


  1. Since that was a year ago, this isn't really relevant but just wanted to say, "I hope you had as much fun as you anticipated!!"
