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.

Setting Charger Up for the Season

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.
