Morston Regatta

Ably run by John Seymour and the men and women of Blakeney Sailing Club, Morston Regatta 2014 (not to be confused with Glasgow 2014) provided lots of fun and fierce competition on Sunday.

Maybe a little less wind than the sailors might have wished for, but ideal for rowing. All started, lined up in sequence, from the traditional point, noses into the mud (Le Mans style), on the west side of the Cut by  Cooke’s marker post.

The rowing was won by a flying Jonathan Freegard in his single scull, hotly pursued by Bluejacket and then Hoi Larntan. Yes, look closely – that’s them in the distance below:

Good news from Kings Lynn they have the first planks glued up on their building frame and all progressing well. Steve in the West Country tells me the Bristol group have completed their build and now starting painting, with a view to an official launch in early September.

Watch out the rest of the world, the English skiffs are coming!
