Apart from an impressive storm early Friday evening, we had beautiful weather all weekend: warm, with barely a cloud in the sky. A lucky few even managed to make an extra long weekend of it.
Sadly, the only juniors who were able to attend were Robin and Kayley, so we had to scratch the junior races.
This gave plenty of time for the grownups to play. The conditions were almost ideal for racing: sunny, warm and windy. We managed to easily complete four races on Saturday. The winds were shifty, so it was always an interesting race.

Terry Scorns, who recently joined OMDA after spending the winter refurbishing his second hand boat, finally got a chance to try it out in the Regatta. Later he took his wife Gwen out for a short sail to try it out.
Paul Lingen adapted a second hand rack so that he can use it to put his Mirror dinghy on a rack on top of his van all by himself.
There were other activities on the water too.
Kayley took Pooh Stick out for a spin on Sunday. It was windy enogh to get the boat up on the plane while reaching.
Part of the Midland Regatta tradition is dinner out at Henry's Fish Restaurant (conveniently located just across the road from the entrance to the campground). We had 25 people in our party, but they had plenty of room on the patio.
Thanks to Derek and Heather Pugh, Elke Lingen and John McCulloch for the photos. If you've got some good photos, please send them in.
