HETTY NEEDS AN UMBRELLA

April 11th

Day 6

Weather is awful .. it hasn’t stopped raining .. pouring all night and all day .. Fortunately chums have arrived by road and air and no doubt alcohol will be imbibed and fun had and the weather will be forgotten

Blue spot is where we are.. Campioni on Lake Garda

A walk was taken this morning in the rain to see the sailing area .. Ok if it stops raining..benches to sit and watch But I don’t think the supporting ladies will be down in this weather

A meet and greet party held in the local bar was a great success even a USA team arrived and much merriment ensued.. and the rain stopped

Day 7

12th April

Race day 1

The wind did blow eventually by mid afternoon

Moving boats around by tractor fully rigged down the main road tickled me

The Driver now called The Skipper did quite well until something broken… all mended now ..

The rain has stopped still chilly and a need for a big coat

Kite surfing to watch as well

An outing to a local hostelry is on tonight’s plan after sailing

Tomorrow the WAGS (wives and girlfriends ) are off to Malcesine on the ferry for a bite of lunch …some are braving the cable car ride up to 6000 ft .. sadly with the cloud on the mountain The Cook thinks it a waste of money and isn’t going but is going out for lunch with the other like minded gals ..

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
