… for the Max from your sailing!

This was the first Poole rally for some years. It was good to be back there.

Five boats attended:

Zuma Blue with Bob Miller and Nicky Hinde

Eye of Horus with Kevin Manville and Andrew

Leda of Hamble with David and David

Blue Lightning with Peter and Sarah Sands

Aloni with Sue and Steve Harridge

In addition, Rob, Frankie and Jamie who joined for the Saturday evening but, being local, their boat stayed on her mooring.

Various crews had lively passages to Poole, some with gusts up to Force 7, but all seemed to have enjoyed the trip even if was bordering on type 2 fun (the sort one enjoys after the event rather than during it).

Kevin and Andrew had arranged some excellent Asian nibbles for the pontoon party (on a newly purchased picnic table, subjected to some strong winds during the evening) after which we retired to Da Vinci’s Restaurant who looked after us all very well.

The wind was generally gentler for the trip home on Sunday, something of a relief.
