CHIPAC J80Fourteen of CHIPAC's members enjoyed two hours of exciting sailing Friday evening,on board a boat a lot larger and faster than the small dinghies they are used to sailing on Mondays and Fridays during the Summer.

The strong Northerly breeze kept the sea fairly flat and the boat heeled and sailed quickly past Gimlet Rock and on towards Carreg y Defaid with all the children being given the opportunity to take the helm for a short while.

Everyone enjoyed the experience and hope to get a similar opportunity next year. They are very grateful to the owner, Mark and Jo Thompson, and to Tomos Tudor for steering the boat.

Mari Davies, a past member of CHIPAC and a very successful International sailor, was on board to coach the youngsters and we are very grateful to her for her generosity to our club.

It was a memorable night and one that will provide a topic for many conversations I am sure.
