Window Of Opportunity Before Storm Brendan.

Clouds and subdued winds met the crew at Barton Turf on the morning of Tuesday 14th January. Tom H, David, Rob, Sue and Barry set off for How Hill in good spirits with the water only slightly choppy. David maintained a regular, effective stroke to the refreshment stop near the eel catcher’s hut. There was no time to hang around, bearing in mind the afternoon forecast, and, after changing positions, Barton Broad beckoned once more. The return journey passed quickly and “Bluejacket” was put away before midday and before the afternoon’s high winds.
