Cyanobacteria (Blue-green algae)
Gone again. Water looks clear and weed-free.
We have continued sailing and, despite usual capsizes, have suffered no ill effects.
Caution about washing is always advisable before eating or handling food, as the water can harbour other sorts of germs, even at the best of times.
Saturday 18th Nov : after a milder week, probably sailing in good wind on Thursday afternoon, next weekend turns colder and sunny with a decent W wind.
Gill Dyer and paul Rogers are on duty.
Richard is again offering to run coaching sessions. The same format as last year - early start Saturday, with instruction, then practice out on the water.
