I was on the committee for the club's GP14 Open Meeting. The first two races were great, lots of wind which made for some exciting racing. However, as you can see from this picture the storm clouds were gathering.
And then the heavens opened! I took this shot from under the cuddy where I sat, sheltered from the wind and rain, only poking my head out to note down sail numbers as the dinghies crossed the line. The poor racers got absolutely drenched and the crew in the safety boats were bailing out the water from the heavens.
We even picked up a poor stranded sailor whose engine had stopped and towed him to his yacht (oh, the indignity of it!). But all in all we had a great time and now I have dried out and been fed and watered at the clubhouse, I am snuggled up in my PJs chilling out.
