      Thanks to all who turned up early @ the duck today for some de weeding chores. The “Terminator” was once again pressed into action and copious amount of weed removed.

      De weeding finished a bit before 11:00am then racing got underway under the watchful eye of PRO Ricky but we only managed 4 races before the rains returned & it was time to make a hasty retreat to the covered deck for a well earned coffee.

      Yes good work team on working together clearing the weed. Guessing we might have been a bit ambitious trying to sail straight after while there was still lots of floating stuff about, but it was fun anyway.
      Thanks to Mike for putting up the scores and shooting some video. Thanks also to Ricky for being our race officer. Well done everyone!
