Allan made it to this run, his first since his incident at Wentworth Falls in November 2017. A very welcome sight and great to see his recovery is going well. After Rob cleared the pond of an abandoned vessel (Canoe), a little bit of formation sailing followed by some independent patrols was the order of the day.
The heat build up did see us packing up a little before noon, but a good run never the less.
Lunch afterwards at the Karuah RSL finished the day.
