It was lovely to be back on the water today for our special bonfire regatta. There were six boats out in total - four doing the first race, five the second and one just checking it would still float! Racing was close at times with three boats all trying to round number six buoy in the very limited space between it and the bank. The first race was won by Jake in his Topper with Ray second, Jason and Meg third (due to a late start as apparently the Commodore doesn't know how to rig his boat for him) and Chris fourth. Having done the duty for the first race, I joined in for the second and won it with Jake second, Jason and Meg third, Ray fourth and Chris fifth. Prizes were awarded to Jake (Celebrations), Ray (Jelly Babies) and Jason and Meg (Mars planets). The final regatta of the year will be on the Sunday of the Laying-Up Supper - more chocolates up for grabs then.
