What a fantastic weekend for us, although we didn’t end up with many visiting boats -
Good easterly wind and plenty of warm sunshine and an enthusiastic, supportive, and welcoming group of club members, thanks to everyone who came along to help. The visitors all 7 of them were unanimous in their praise for the club's generous hospitality, especially the 2 visiting enterprise boats who hadn’t been to Castle Semple before / for some years. And late on Sunday afternoon Oliver had a captive audience falling off their chairs at his stories.
There was a good easterly wind on Saturday afternoon and since not a lot was forecast for Sunday we did 4 races on the Saturday. However, our luck was in and the wind held for our 2 races on Sunday morning. I am sure Paul/Arthur will be writing a more technical report for the GP association, so I won’t comment on how many times Steve and I beat Paul and Ann… or which enterprise capsized on Saturday…
15 of us had a great evening in the Loch House on Saturday night and since Paul was present plenty of banter was flying about.
The winners were:
Many thanks to O'Neills of Paisley for arranging the engraving of glasses.
We owe a huge thanks to our sponsors Gael Force Marine for supplying prizes of 2 x £100 vouchers, 2 x £50 and 2 x £20 -
Also thanks to Duncan for organising an entertaining raffle at the end -
