Everyone at Barnt Green had obviously gone to alot of trouble to give us a good meeting. The food was excellent (as Mark said) and good value, the OD actually postponed starts because boats were still trying to drift to the area, and the prizes were really generous - we got enough wine for a decent headache and we were only fifth!
It was a superb event (and setting) let down only by the wind on Sunday, not exactly the club's fault.
Thanks to everyone that had put in the work, I hope next year will bring a bit more wind and a few more boats.

Yes it certainly makes an open meeting more appealing when the race officer doesn't constantly attempt to catch the fleet out. I'm hoping the chap from this year continues in his role for future years.
