Bart’s Bash

14 boats took part in Bart’s Bash.  The variable northerly winds were quite challenging but most stuck it out for 3 races.  The overall winners were Martin and Lynn Harland, with Scott Bonner and Dan Wright second and Mike Hayes and Steve Chidgey third.  The majority of entrants wore fancy dress, the most outrageous of which was Sue Weston and Steve Briggs (Dirty Habits).

Big thanks to all those who made it happen.

2017 Regatta

Another great Durleigh Regatta.  Not the best turnout we’ve had despite perfect weather. but those that did, enjoyed a day of music, food, sailing and games.  Big thank you to the band and all those that worked their socks off to make it happen.
