I’ve just returned after spending the weekend with Peter on Suomi sailing back from Cardiff to Portishead and then Lydney.
This was the end of what seems to have been a very successful summer cruise, following winds and sunshine in the main. Suomi sails like a dream and with Peter’s expert attention we easily stayed ahead of the fleet (6.6 Knots through the water) until we turned back to wait for a bedraggled John on Muckle Flugger who suffered a blown Gib and dodgy engine.
One or two members of the club suffered some interesting adventures which I will leave others to elaborate on. Pictures to follow.
A great success thanks to Peter and great to see so many taking part for some if not all of the cruise. A special welcome was given to the stalwarts Terry and Allan on Ebony Gem and we hope to see more of them in the future.
