Club members Simon and Joe Browning, Darren Griffiths, and Simon Ellis, sailing in their respective boats, enjoyed a trip to Piel Island in glorious weather. After drinks at the Ship Inn and the obligatory walk around the island, they returned to ‘Rivendell’ for a barbecue hosted by Simon and Joe. The food was excellent as usual. Next day, instead of sailing home with the others, Simon Ellis in ‘Peter Duck’ hitched a ride on the morning tide flooding into Morecambe Bay to explore the shallow channels up as far as Ulverston. Contact was made with the natives — a friendly Drascombe Dabber crewed by local residents. All went to plan and all made it back to Wardleys Creek safely.
The following photographs are shown roughly in chronological order.
