Foul weather frolics

Some intrepid members of the club were out in Busta Voe on Saturday 21 August – in force 8 / 9 winds!  They only went a wee bit out of the marina, and there was a rescue boat at hand.  All those who took part enjoyed it – though they were mostly thoroughly shattered to end up with.  The remit was ‘to practice rescues in tough conditions’ but they were mainly having fun with the challenge of going into the wind, and the thrill of surfing back with it – and we were glad of the rescue boat back-up (Thanks to Graham Nicol in a fast RIB) for peace of mind and safety.
