Beale Park 2009

At Beale Park the weather was grim for the first two days, but suddenly on Sunday there was dazzling sunshine and people could throw off their coats.

The Academy marquee was larger than ever, and Bob Hinks and Will Reed sailed from the pontoon. John Harris, Ian Thomson, Dan Lipczynski, Joe Blathwayt, Bob Hinks and Will Reed all brought boats from earlier courses, Instructor Justin Adkin came with the rowing/sailing boat he has designed and built with students, Steve Petford’s clinker crib attracted much attention and Alex Thriepland’s canoe represented the Class of September 2008, all of whose boats stayed in Lyme Regis, getting ready for the launch on 11th June.
