I was sent some very pretty photos (see right column of Y&Y page linked below).
I'm hoping we get sent a report soon, but it's always tricky to find an author, I know!

Depends how you would describe 'sailing', I'm a river sailor and even I would be more inclined to call the morning race 'drifting'... don't know about the afternoon because the morning was so 'exciting', I couldn't take anymore of it and have to leave swiftly after...

It was pretty much the worst nightmare for a race officer.  Everything else was organised for a good day's sailing but the wind refused to blow.  One of the pictures shows our spinnaker up and sort of filling, which it must have done for all of 3 minutes in total.  There were 3 races, and a lot of "abstensions" - the balcony was pretty full all day!
