What a grand sail today. Five RCCSSC members and some special guests of John Cranwell Ward, gathered to sail a Squib: Lift Off and Soling: Time Flies.
The special sailing guests were John’s granddaughter and grandson, accompanied by Dad. The sailed on board Time Flies and even though she is only 9, J showed great talent at helming and wind awareness – a natural. Her younger brother was along for the ride, but we can guess he’ll be back and want his turn before too long. All too soon, it was time for them to head home – we look forward to you all joining us again.
Eric, Mark and Dave sailed on Lift Off in the morning and enjoyed sailing in company with Time Flies and her crew.
All change in the afternoon and Mark and Mike took out Lift Off and Eric and Dave Time Flies. Pardon the pun but time does fly when sailing on Rutland Water, with just a few boats in sight and enjoying a sail.
Meanwhile, Eric got some more helm time on Time Flies as did Dave Grundy – cracking sailing.
