Porthpean Sailing Club

2010 Mid Summer BBQ
June 19th 2010

The beautiful Bay of Porthpean provided a pristine setting for a BBQ. This afternoon we hosted a Capsize Club with a difference when the Canoe Club were invited to have a go at sailing. Our full fleet of training boats were on the water ferrying several people out to the beach marks and back. The conditions were nigh on perfect with a light westerly breeze, allowing easy launching and recovery, plus being gentle enough to glide across the waters without causing concern to anyone.

The afternoon was followed by a BBQ, which was cooked as usual by Simon Pryce and in the galley was a team of ladies including Maria, Kay & Sarah, dishing out the food, this was followed by a Pavlova, topped with fresh strawberries and cream which had been prepared by Sarah, all very delicious. Entertainment was provide by the mystery DJ. He had left all his kit here and all we had to do was turn it on and enjoy the music.

My little camera has been playing up of late so apologies for the quality of some of the pictures, but here are a few photographs taken on the evening.
