Round the Island 2014...

It was a bit of a lottery this year. The lack of wind made it long and hot. Often we could see the breeze we so badly needed, often it would be just a few hundred yards away, and almost every time there would be several hundred becalmed yachts between us and it! Never mind, it was a wonderful weekend, we finished in good spirits and we probably didn't disgrace ourselves with 8th in class.
