The team are now all in Workum.. After a time mix up by Tim and Carla ( they were on british summer time not Dutch time !!) Carla eventually arrived not quite an hour late to collect the sailors.. Tim, Murray and Dan did sterling work while she was away.. they unpacked all the boats for everyone and then found the supermarket and bought lunch and supper for today. Tim offered to cook .They also sorted the vehicle passes for the team so we can get in and out of the campsite where the regatta is being held. Dan and Murray are excused washing up for the next few days . One sailor said that they did not know how to wash up but without a dishwasher they should get plenty of practice before they get home .
We all had lunch on our terrace , its sunny here , and Georgia, Mimi, Dan and Murray have gone off to set up their boats and check out the sailing area.. Josh , Jemima and Will have been packed off to bed to catch up on some of the sleep they have missed. They got back from the Feva nationals after having to stay for prize giving at 1.30am last night and had to leave for the airport at 5.00 am so we thought sleep was probably their biggest priority today . Jemima with Jenny Cropley won the top junior and top junior girls prize, Josh who was crewing for Matilda Dolin finished 12th and the reason we could not find Will was he crashed into the Silver fleet literaly as his helm had a head injury..but finished second while he was there . We heard our Matt did not hold onto his lead something to do with black flags and "I " flag.
We are going down to the boat park to register later. Arran Holmans Gul stickers were spotted on his boat in the boat park but we have not met up with him yet. Its definitely shorts and sun cream weather here but not much wind. Over a thousand boats are expected at this event 300 optimists. More later and maybe some sailing pictures ,
