Support for last week’s prize nights was awesome! Thank you to all those who braved the cold, miserable weather to get here.

Attention Midweek sailors: Just as a general bit of advice, following the start and when the RPYC boats are charging down towards Foam Buoy for the first time, do try to keep well clear of that area otherwise your pleasant afternoon sail could turn into a real demolition derby. We want to avoid ugly scenes like this, so after rounding Sampson Spit, pass Foam Buoy (55) to starboard and stay safe.
Alright, that’s it. Let’s roll! Hey, let’s be careful out there.
