Unfortunately the wind did not play game again with us this week, but all enjoyed the beautiful evening it proved.

We however did manage to sneak in a little Burgee handover with Wicomico Yacht Club Commodore Peter Hanulak - see below.
Thank you again for everything yesterday. The hospitality and food was fantastic. You have a great club to be proud of.
Thanks again.
