Meeting point at the Pleasure Boat Dyke Hickling, come along and enjoy a friendly race or even just a chat. It would be Brilliant to see some old friends and meet new ones

Well, that was fun!  :clap 
About 13 boats ranging from a dinghy through several half-deckers up to the River Cruisers and production yachts. A decent if gusty blow on the Broad and the usual iffy wind on the river (particularly on the Whiteslea corner). 
Congrats to all who took part for keeping it mostly friendly on the water and convivial off it. cheersbar 
Special thanks to the Commodore :bow for arranging it all and for getting the timings just about right - I mean, who cares if the start goes a minute early really?  :roll: 

The best bit of all, I kept the boat upright (ish) and most of the water where it belongs - outside the boat! :unsure:

It would be Brilliant to see you!

Don't forget there are other events in the Upper Thurne rag hanging calendar as well - Horsey Regatta (probably 2nd w/e in May) and the Hickling Broad Village Regatta (usually 2nd w/e in Aug but generally appears in the Green Book) - all events best suited to socialites with a minor racing habit cheersbar
