With the forecast for a maximum air temperature of 4 degrees … and a wind chill factor bringing it plummeting below freezing, we were a little hesitant to put the camp on at the weekend. But with the long range forecast looking a little dubious for wind the following week and with some people voicing interest, we reduced to a one-day camp on the Sunday and braced ourselves for the cold.
With several sailors focusing on core-skills and the rest practising their race starts and buoy roundings, it proved to be a worthwhile exercise on the water, and despite the cold everyone seemed to get something out of the camp … and we’re not referring to cold extremities or flu! Thanks for Al Cross from NWF for his support and promotion, and to Andy Stallman for the photos. The next camp is on the weekend of 11-12th March and is going to be a perfect warm up before the start of the new 2017 BSA season. Look forward to welcoming you to the centre.
