The Junior class was delighted to have thirty boats out on the water for the mid-summer regatta, including a handful of visiting sailors who belong to other Kent clubs.

Thunder, lightning and torrential rain during lunchtime resulted in lots of chatter about the likelihood of getting a third race in. At 2pm, with not so much as a ripple on the lake, a decision was made to call it a day. Although the skies remained moody, the rain held off for prize-giving.

Thank you to today’s duty team and everyone else who helped make the event run smoothly, and to Rooster for their sponsorship of the prizes. An extra special thank you to our brilliant class captain, Jenny for spending her birthday running this event!
