The Otter Easter Egg Open Regatta 1 Apr 2007
Almost 70 competitors took part in the regatta; I think all of them ended up taking a dip in the river at some point. With winds gusting over 25 knots, it really was a lively weekend.
Race Officer Paul Noonan had a difficult task but managed to hold two races over the weekend in the adverse weather.
Despite the conditions, there were plenty of smiling faces and epic stories of great speed achieved, and, of course, drama of the perils of the lee shore.
