Easter Bonnet 2016

Five boats took to the water for this year’s Easter Bonnet. Although windy, that did not stop many getting their boats wet for the first time this year. Martin Gibson continued his winning ways, but this time with the help of daughter Ella in the Tasar. Abbi selected a good sized sail for her Laser, being able to comfortably handle the windy conditions. Securing 2nd place.

Phil took 3rd place before suffering boat failure, which saw him take a swim. Paul was travelling well in his Contender taking 4th place and although also went swimming a few times. Is perfecting the art of righting his boat in a super quick time! A slightly fragile Stuart and Trevor were out in their newly purchased 420. Despite having the mast fall, they had just managed to complete the first race.

Day 2 was not able to happen due to storm Katie making it too windy!
