Considering the atrocious conditions on Friday, just unpleasant on Saturday, the four skippers who made it to the lake this morning were surprised how pleasant it was on Sunday!

Well it wasn’t snowbound or frozen, the car park was relatively dry, and it was at least 3 degrees C – I was too warm under all my winter woollies. But the beast of a wind from the east had gone as well, leaving just enough to run 5 reasonable races and lots of time for sitting around chatting and drinking coffee.
