Well there was no wind forecast - and it was right! What we did have though was virtually uninterupted sunshine - and lots of babies!! We had quite a good turnout, considering the lack of any wind, with everyone enjoying the brilliant sunshine, lots of dips in the sea and an excellent BBQ courtesy of Heather and Bill on Saturday night. Juan Gen and the boys were down on both days, Roger, Beatrice and daughter on Saturday and Jonathan, Jane and daughter on Sunday. Audrey, SteveG, JohnG & Bristol Nick made up the current contingent with guest appearances from Pete Newell and Robbie from days gone by although they did threaten to rejoin now its free! All in all that took us over the 20 barrier - not bad for a no wind weekend - great to see everyone and thanks once again the H&B!

We didn't sail - but were tempted - we had granny and the babes and decided to have a paddle and icecream instead and then escape the sun for a siesta. Don't worry - number three got a go next.

No wind and no sailing this weekend but lots of glorious sunshine. Spent all weekend on the beach (as I was host!) and got a great suntan!!
