Hughes Birthday (86th!) Regatta 2012 ….!!


Well, it was pouring at 1030 …. six boats on the slip….  The turnout was a shade disappointing given turnouts of recent years …  but we had moved the date, clashed with the Wimbledon Finals…. and Silverstone!!

It was Mrs Hughes who cracked first. She had huge difficulty is persuading Richard J not to sail   🙂  However, suddenly the sun broke through and 5 boats took off.  PRO Hanson laid a super little course in the Bay.  Ashore we had great socialising with Andrew Murphy and Alan Atterbury who had called by for a coffee.

In the end, the Trophy went to the Hughes family hotshots – Mervyn Hughes and Alex Cass !!
