Thanks to all who contributed to the end of season Christmas dinner celebrations on Sunday. After the morning squalls a rainbow emerged, captured by David Scott on camera, causing many of us to have a bit of a moment and count our blessings. Merry Christmas everyone!
After the recent busy week of the UK Fireball Nationals held at Penzance last week, the club was full of the regular old faces and some new ones, as the home races kicked off again.

After a successful yet tricky week on the water, the final results have now been published.
The weather was perfect on Saturday for the 2018 club regatta.
Thanks again to all who made the day possible on the safety boats and also to Brian and Liz who did great work in the race office with help from Adrian, Theresa (and Dave) put in the long hours in the galley and BBQ, and Colin who was everywhere from Courselayer to Deepsea to bar.
