Braving the sub-zero conditions Sat 9th Jan 2010

By Simon
Elaine and I spent half an hour scraping ice off the slip and putting salt down so that we could launch safely. There was a narrow ice clear channel following the harbour wall around past the catamaran which we took then up to the bridge. Very exhilarating for all but some very cold feet for the ones that had to do the inevitable wading at launch and recovery!!
