Last weekend did the 'Round Two Tree' circumnavigation. Daughter and me in my Laser, son and daughter of friend in his Topper. 2 hours to get round. It was warm and the breeze filled in.
Sometimes the simplest things are the most fun...

Nothing warms the cockles like seeing a laser on its side

Sometimes the swallows and amazons stuff is just the best!  Even the pro's head off and do it occasionally...

It's nice to give the competetive tensions of racing a break. There is nothing better than just having fun in boat, in the sun, with friends and family.............the jib's not sheeted right or the boat's not perfectly upright? So bl**dy what, I'm relaxed and don't care, I'm having fun.

Nice reminder Mark.

423zero, yes, there is not enough clearance, so we swam the boats under. We were going with the wind and the tide, so there was quite a lot of force, and very little grip in the soft mud.
It was a bit worrying at times!
