Half a dozen dinghies set off, two Hamble Stars, one Bosun, a GP14 an Albacore and a Dart 16 catamaran, Hendrik and Sid kindly assisted providing Safety boat cover and John filled Loucha will all the prospective member who couldn't be found space on the dinghies. The SE breeze gave us a dead beat down Long Reach and gradually increased to F 2/3 providing an excellent opportunity for instruction in the art of sailing to windward. Greenhithe then provided the choice of a picnic on the foreshore or a welcome in the pier hotel followed by a pleasant run back to EYC
