Fleet Base Perth - Sail day, Sunday 15 July 2018

Postby PearlHarbour52 » 19 Jul 2018 20:55

The day commenced with a breakfast for all our members that attended as us her if the west have been experiencing an above average rainfall over the last couple of months which has been hindering the sailing.

Attending the breakfast was Andrew, Glen, Nigel, Graeme, Richard and Bob and we managed to keep the rain gods at bay for most of the morning, with only a couple of boats sailing. Andrew brought down his JMSDF Osumi after undertaking work on detailing the well deck and sealing it from the elements. Nigel brought down his ever faithful HMAS Toowoomba, which always looks good on the water, either rain or sunshine.

Anne Serafini also popped down to say hello and brought with her Serge's impressive model of HMS Ardent, which always attracts attention to the lakeside spectators.

Nice to see Ardent, bet it was strange without Serge walking into the cold water in his thongs and shorts holding it whilst everyone is rugged up.

Indeed, it was nice to to have Anne bring Ardent again Rob, but not seeing her Skipper is something I think none of us here will ever get used to. Glen has kindly offered to do some repairs to put right some damage sustained at the Funeral, a nice gesture that Serges Family will no doubt appreciate immensely.
We have had enough of this weather, that is for sure, and can't wait for Spring to arrive.

I second what Nige has said.It's hard to think he will no longer join us we just miss our mate.

Cheers Glen
