We had a wide variety of weather conditions over the course of the weekend: the only thing missing was decent sailing weather.
It's always nice to relax once you've finally arrived.
The weather wasn't very inviting Saturday morning, unless you're a duck. Or you have some great new rain gear and boots to test out!
After a while the rain stopped and it was quite sunny. Hopeful sailors rigged their boats.
Sadly, the decent sailing weather only lasted a few minutes. Almost as soon as the rain stopped it was replaced with a feroucuously gusty wind.
It was raining again Sunday morning. Aleid moved the President's pancake breakfast to the B.L.S.C. clubhouse.
After a couple of hours, the rain started to let up a bit, and the wind started picking up again. Steve Richardson was determined to try out his new rigging, so he ventured out.
Unfortunately, his main halyard came undone, and he had to put ashore by one of the cottages to rethread it through the top of the mast.
And he eventually made it safely back to the B.L.S.C. dock.
Thanks to Derek and Heather Pugh, Randy and Marika Beaumont and John McCulloch for the photos. If you've got some good photos, please send them in.
