Thank you to all the volunteers who turned out for the working bee. Some of us went to the extreme of spraying the roof or cleaning the gutters in order to avoid the dreaded oven but all the jobs on Fraser's list were dealt to. Wind wise spring sprung a surprise in the form of light and variable winds. Some sailors were clearly struggling to find their inner peace as windless holes enveloped them. Other sailors, like our esteemed commodore, had their last leg 'dial a friend call' for wind answered, carving up the fleet from last to second place finish. The highlight of the day was the special effort made by one Zephyr skipper to get his name on the Dorsal Fin nominee list early in the season.
