Good Hog Roast turnout in the drizzle

After a beautiful morning, and a sunny day, the weather turned sour and a thick fog with added drizzle set in just as the club marquee went up!

Small groups of gore-tex clad families started heading down to the sailing club hut at around 6.30 for ample servings of hog, crackling and good company.


Luckily the weather improved marginally, and Fireman Peck made sure everyone remained warm and entertained.


Marshmallow time!

Despite a slight gas problem (no reference to the morning after – the hog man forgot his spare gas bottle, so we could have been enduring cold Pork rolls!) everyone enjoyed their meal and a quiet drink or four, while reminiscing on the days sailing.

Thanks to Vice-Commodore Adrian Garside and family for arranging a great evening, and to the usual supsects who assembled the club marquee / gazeebo / tent structure, only to take it down again 4 hours later while slightly the worse for wear!
