North Berwick Traditional Boat Muster

I had hoped to be at this event on Saturday, but the weather was against me. Several interesting new and historic small boats were going to be there. No report from the East Lothian Yacht Club yet.The organiser emailed me:

We did manage to run the??rowing race, but it was hard work in a bit of running swell and a F5??breeze. ??Two Drascombes together with Paragon and Bedouin got out for a??short sail, but it was pretty wild, possibly F6 by then. ??We had two??reefs and the storm jib, but still managed to bury the gunnel in the??green a couple of times. ??Still, at least it wasn’t raining!

No place for a sailing canoe. Hope to be there in the Walkabout next year.
