So the KWSC May Open event takes place across the 5th and 6th of May.  I have been very excited about it as it was going to be an opportunity for me to sail my own boat for once – only the second time this year with everything else that has been going on.  And as an instructor, victory would surely be mine!

The wind has been, shall we say, light.

Would have meant more if the two below me and the one above hadn’t gone home on the Saturday night.
