This past weekend saw the start of our Double Handed Series where 22 boats joined us on the water, eagerly waiting for the start gun. The weather during the week was not looking favourable. On the day however, King Neptune calmed the sea conditions and winds in order for us to enjoy time on the water. He was clearly asking forgiveness for playing hide and seek with our permanent racing marks and deciding to destroy a few.
