Public spirited warm-up routine

John and Helen were spotted hard at work early on Saturday and Sunday cleaning the pontoon before the K1/ FF/ Wayfarer competitions – so that we could launch quicker

This is obviously worthwhile exercise as they went on to win the FF open meeting very convincingly.  Perhaps we should all give it a try – I certainly appreciated sailing in a clean boat!
