The Second Coming

Hugh was out amongst it yesterday, putting all the skills he learned at last week's Spring Cup Regatta and yesterday morning's training session with Commodore Darrin into play.  He is now  forward tacking and leaning out like a champion.  He managed to complete three races, all in second place, of which Carolyn and Mark were so proud.  Most importantly he had a ball.

Hugh's mum and dad were out in the rubber duck cheering him on and giving him lots of unwanted advise.  After Mark's 50 years of experience on the water, they still managed to run out of petrol twice.  Luckily there were lots of BYRA people on hand to help.  Next time they will take out extra petrol and if not, at least some oars.

The conditions were perfect for junior sailing and here you are viewing the beginning of a beautiful career on the water.
