A bit of a disaster really. Arrived on the evening of the 26th August, and looking forward to photographing the jetskiing and spending time with good friends. Well, the friends were great, the jetskiing was short lived (very!) and the weather was tripe!

Wondering why this entry is regarding August but filed in September? just too damned busy! Got back from Portpatrick, a bit of rushing around and then off to Wales.

Oh yeah, remember those two regattas I was looking forward to? they both got binned. I was gutted to say the least.

I have to say, I felt particularly sorry for the club and it’s members, as this had taken a lot of organising and was to be their first National event for the CYRC. However, the water board had other ideas.

Thanks to Anne for general assistance whilst limping about and doing my John Silver impression!
