The Spring Splash at Labour Weekend had good attendance in perfect weather. It was exactly what was needed to blow out the cobwebs of winter and get us looking in anticipation to the summer ahead. With a moderate breeze and most yachts carrying their #2 headsails, we all charged around the usual course through Blanche Channel and back to Bon Accord - except for a few who were delayed a while under the lee of Motuketekete. Well done to Richard Dodd on Starlight who managed to beat the rising bilge waters to take first place before he was forced to man the buckets.Achernar followed after having passed Castanet and Scout in the dash to the finish with Rainbird closing up quickly in the battle for third. After the race a raftup with a prizegiving and potluck shared meal and festivities followed through the evening onboard the ‘mothership’ Moerangi. What could be better on a mild spring evening!2020 photos posted on the EVENTS page.
