Busy summer Saturday at BLS

Saturday 8 July saw a busy morning for BLS in fantastic warm sunny weather with a gentle breeze to push us along. We continued Hansa training for the upcoming President’s Cup, getting 4 boats out on the water under instruction from our Senior Instructor, Colin. A few new recruits got a trip out on a Hawk 20 with Brian to show them the ropes (I mean, sheets & halyards). Paul entertained a visit from Core Respite in Rosy along with Gillian in a Hawk. And a lady who came with her school recently enjoyed it so much that she brought her whole family down to enjoy a run on on SeaRover with Bill. And all under the safe and watchful eye of Colin and John. Finally, RYA Northern Ireland’s Women on Water (WOW) were being supported by us providing our three Hawk 20s for use to round off the afternoon.
