Brilliant sunshine but no wind was the weather for the Lymington rally but everyone agreed it was preferable to wet and windy!
The rally was well attended with 13 boats participating; 8 alongside the Dan Bran pontoon, Lookin Foor Kloos alongside the Royal Lymington Yacht Club pontoon as host boat for the pontoon party, 3 other local boats (left on their moorings) and the Sams who arrived by car.
The pontoon party was attended by 28 crew in lovely evening sunshine before moving into the Royal Lymington Yacht Club.
As we had a private room, I twisted Andy and Sara Horwood’s arms to give a talk on their summer cruise to Northern Spain and back. It was very well received with some excellent pictures and included accounts of two crossings of the Bay of Biscay and what to do when your propeller falls off in Spanish waters! Many thanks to Sara and Andy for sharing their experiences.
Dinner followed with some excellent catering from the club.
On the Sunday, fine weather continued for the journeys home.
