Fitting Out Hatseflats
Alastair, Chris, John and Hubert and Klarie decided to sail to Langstone and visit the pub (Royal Oak).
It was Federation Week, so quite busy with dinghies.
We saw many Sharpies from the Netherlands, some of whom enquired how we got to Chichester.
We sailed in company with Chris W and his Polly Wee.
Most of the trip to Langstone was upwind.
When we got near to Hayling Island we had a massive windshift.
All of a sudden we were on a dead run.
While we were trying to understand what had happened the wind shifted back and we continued as before.
We landed at the Royal Oak pub, soon followed by Alastair and Chris.
Unfortunately we could not order something to eat because the kitchen was too busy.
The return trip was a run.
Chris had a headstart so he was way on front of us.
Polly Wee looked quite exciting with the mast tip swinging from left to right.
John Lidstone paddled all the way in his canoe.
On his return to Cobnor he said 'Never again!'.
David Morl made a trip with Liz Baker.
