2016 Annual Sponsored Sail @ Sutton Dinghy ClubThe Annual Sponsored Sail last Friday went ahead despite the fickle wind Gods. With the evening initially too windy to launch dinghies, the kids were brought out on the Ribs.

A few capsizes meant skills learnt in the last few weeks were required to much earlier than some probably had anticipated. In these sort of conditions PICO’s are fun.
