A few pictures to give a flavour of the event…..
Launching at Port Blanc, new trailer performing well…
Followed by some short orientation rows
that hinted at the sea state encountered later in the week. The water in the Golfe never seems happy to stay where it is.
and there were a few boats about to add to the interest.
On subsequent days we attended a picnic,
encountered some more of the interesting conditions, which H-L took very well..
saw lots more tall ships
all manner of boats for that matter…
On the last day took part in the Grand Parade, then moored up to watch proceedings from the hotel’s lawn.
Next event in 2 years time (to allow local stocks of shellfish to recover!) – definitely recommended.
