GBR: 2019 National Championships
South Shields Sailing Club, 9th – 11th August
Supported by Rooster & Diamond Drilling Ltd
Prologue: Before any major D-One event there is always something that sets the tone for the weekend, bizarrely it appears to always come from the same person. The tone for this event soon became apparent on the training day (8th August). The post goes out “the camper has failed (again)”.
Many offers of support were provided by the ever friendly D-One sailors and with the poorly camper safely ensconced in a nearby garage the wayward sailor once again began his journey with the knowledge that alternative accommodation had kindly been provided by local lad Ken Ward.
Several hours later and whilst the normal greetings were being had there was an almighty shriek I’ve got no clothes”! Answers on a postcard please stating where you think they were…. you may win a camper! A quick trip to a local store and several t-shirt purchases (albeit a little snug in great colours) later, a must have trip to the curry mile was much needed and appreciated by those that chose to partake. As you can imagine the training session was not high on the agenda.
