Fun Day - Saturday 27th June
A fantastic day was had by all, with favourable wind and plenty of sun for all. By the end of the day everyone was readfy for the BBQ and a refreshing drink.
A great selection of live music was provided by Karl, Simon, Emma, & Murray.
Thanks to all who took part in making it such a great day. Looking forward to the next one!
Final thanks go to Eve for pulling the event together.
Racing took place outside the harbour in the bay just off South Shields. Saturday brought bright sunshine with medium, but gusty and shifty winds. Conditions on Sunday were more challenging with winds gusting to 30 knots. The final race was abandoned as the wind strengthened. A total of 19 boats took place in the event, including 5 Solutions with some travelling from as far away as North Wales.
