First Triana Boats.com Meeting

The first Triana Boats.com meeting was recently held in Yarmouth I.O.W. on Saturday 12th September 2009. The day dawned well and became a brilliant, clear autumn day; warm but livened with a brisk north easterly force 4/5.

The Hamble boats 'Le Scarron' and 'Lady Emma' headed out across a busy Solent towards Newtown creek where they were joined by 'Merlin 'who had spent the prevous evening there on the hook. The three Triana 25's picked up their skirts and headed west, making short work of the Solent chop. Soon a familiar profile hove into view and they were treated to the fabulous sight of 'Blue Corsair' catching up fast.

The flotilla soon made Yarmouth where we were made very welcome by the Harbour Master's staff. Safely moored, barely was the first batch of Pimm's mixed before we were joined by Corsair 'Zest'.

The company was completed by Charly and his wife Kathleen who had travelled all the way from their home port of Nieupoort in Belgium. Lunch followed...

Some time later we headed to Norton Spit for a barbecue backlit by a stunning sunset where an enormous quantity of sausages were cooked and heartily devoured!

Next morning, after a full English breakfast, the boats headed back to their home ports and were treated to a magnificent display by the Red Arrows.  The eighteen attendees, whose ages ranged from 11 months to 50 years plus...agreed they had all enjoyed a friendly, relaxed weekend.
