Plymouth Branch Cruising group meet at Jupiter Point 8/9 August 15

Plymouth - 10 Aug 15 General

The Plymouth Branch cruising group have just enjoyed a weekend at Jupiter Point.

On a windless Saturday morning the Plymouth cruising group motored their way up river to Jupiter Point; having only just rebuilt the water pump the previous day I was particularly pleased with my new found marine engineering skills arriving at JP without incident. A few made the effort to hoist sails for no apparent reason but eventually 10 boats arrived alongside. It was nice to see some members making their first RNSA meet as well as others who have been away for a while. With instructions to arrive after 1200 Port Star wasted no time arriving at 1201; I don’t think Ricky realised that the beer wasn’t coming out until 1800! A number of attendees took a stroll down to the Wilcove Inn on a perfect summer afternoon before heading back to JP for the evening. Barbecues were lit at 1800 and the social event continued until late into the evening. With a light breeze blowing on Sunday morning the group departed getting at least an hour or two under sail. Once again a great weekend was had by all, making use of the excellent facilities available at Jupiter Point. Our next planned meet is at the Dartmouth Regatta,27-31 August, where we look forward to meeting up with the other RNSA branches.
