Just recovering from two nights on the beer! So, all my photos from the RYA Dinghy Show.

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of interest in our Osprey and the numbers of people attended with the weather situation.

It was a shame Ben, Simon, Sam, and Alan Henderson didn't make it but the work on the video and talk prep was invaluable to us all.

Not forgetting Mark Hartley (and Adam for screwing the boat back together) for bringing their own boat 1366 for our stand (I only asked him on Thursday and it arrived on Friday) almost forgot Oscar and David for the vibrant off the cuff stand-in for Ben, Oscar you were a star.

The stage waiting for Oscar & David

Lastly Ros, Jonathan, and Peter for making it all work like it should.

The last photo is 'the' Coronation cup from the 1952 race around the IOW. ---- are we going to race again around the IOW?
