Portpatrick Weekend

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!

The Regatta revived!

Funny, isn’t it? You get told everything’s off. There’s no water, no lake, no boats, no people and no fun! Until you speak to one of the guys in charge. “Yes, the water will be low, and we can’t say for sure how low. Cancel? not yet!”

The Regatta is sunk!

Just been informed that a regatta I was to cover in September near Denbigh, Wales has been cancelled. Apparently the organisers were informed by email within the last day or so. The waterboard are draining the lake to allow maintenance to be carried out on a wall. The lake will be out of use throughout the yacht club’s busiest time, and re-filling isn’t scheduled to begin until early September, around the date of the much publicised and anticipated regatta.
