The sailing season kicked off with our annual weekend at Belwood. The early arrivals taught some of the newer OMDA members all about its important traditions.
We had beautiful suny day on Saturday. It was a great chance to fix up the boat and remember what went where. John McCulloch helped new OMDA member Terry Scorns rig his newly restored Mirror.
A bunch of us went out for a cruise to make sure we still remembered how to sail. We managed that, but some of us found that the knowledge of how to rig a spinnaker didn't survive the winter intact! (Sorry, no photos yet)
A good day to begin learning to sail
It was nice for kayaking too!
And even rent-a-baby
Or just catching up
After a great day, we had the campfire
Sunday morning began with the President's Pancake Breakfast hosted by past president Aleid.
The weather was much colder and the winds were quite high.
Only the keenest sailors ventured out.
Besides sailing, there was advice on other matters too.
Thanks to Peter Kaiser, Hanzo van Beusekom, Paulette Tae, John and Danny McCulloch and Stephen Steel for the photos. If you've got some good photos, please send them in.
