An, er... interesting start to Kestrels this year. Yep, it snowed. No wait! Come back! It wasn't that bad. And the weather improved dramatically after that day. Well, it stopped snowing. On some of the days. Hmmm. I'm not selling this, am I?
Stopped at Potter post-bridge, Phil grins happily at the camera. Well, he grins, at least. His crew looks on with concern. And see? It's not snowing anymore.
The crew of Wood Violet (mate Matt, crew Rachel and Harry) enjoy some much-needed cake. Mmmm, chocolate. And look, it's practically sunny now.
Ed and Claire demonstrate an ancient and secret sailing skill by holding a boat onto a mooring using only the palms of their hands. Of course, this requires years of training and numerous safety precautions, hence the taut bow line.
Meanwhile, skipper Dan and mate Laura enjoy some food aboard their boat. Dan in particular is clearly enjoying his sandwich.
Concerned that the tide may have gone out during lunch, the skippers send Alex out on an exploratory. Actually, he's rescuing a wayward tennis ball (you can just see it down by the cruiser).
The wind slows on the way down to Barton, so Matt decides to hang out. Okay, that pun was very poor. And unintentional.
Various people hanging out on the bank at Irstead. George looks thoughtful, Matt wields a frying pan. Obviously some complex social dynamic at work there.
