Well it wasn't OMDA's most sucessful Regatta. The wind conditions were pretty extreme and it was COLD!.
We even had a spot of hail.
Besides poor weather, we were woken up at 3 am by vandals who had broken into Belwood. We didn't figure out what some of the noise was until the next morning, when it became apparent that they had shown a distinct lack of respect for the presidential vehicle!
The local constabularly was called to inspect the damage.
It was too windy to sail a regatta, but it gave use plenty of time to get Charger put back together, ready for some more hospitable conditions.
We did get some short patches of nice weather.
On Sunday morning, everbody was treated to the traditional President's Breakfast served by current and former OMDA presidents
"I don't know what all the grownups are griping about, this is the best
Victoria Day weekend I can remember!"
At least there were some non-sailing activities available.
Thanks to Hanzo VanBeusekom, John McCulloch and Paulette Tae for the Photos.
