Plans for the day were rapidly changed to suit the conditions. The attending members didn’t look too enthusiastic, others decided at home it wasn't for them !. The planned sessions on Starting, Rules and Extreme Sailing were revised – Starting and Rules were extended into shore based session whereas it looked like Luke would have suitable conditions for his Extreme Sailing session !
Andrew, Luke and John lead a good discussion on the main rules for when two boats meet and we all played with Picos on the grass looking at ‘mark room’.

At the end everybody seemed to have a good day and learnt lots despite the conditions and thanks are due to Andrew, Luke, John, John and Jo for leading some really interesting sessions.
