Deneb Captain's Log XXXVIII
22nd April 2019
I hope everyone had a good weekend!
Unforgettable Training Camp. Good training sessions Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I hope everyone enjoyed the Sunday morning improvised team building exercise, wait until you see what I have in mind for the next camp. Apologies for the joke and my sense of humour, but you know I don't conceive of life without humour.
Now being serious. THANK YOU ALL for the remarkable behaviour Sunday morning, giving support to the Hamhaugh Island Community and later the Fire Brigade when a fire broke out in the early morning. I will let the details for the another time in the bar. Long story short, no personal damages to report, and a well deserved beer afterwards (see attached). I can only say Well Done Gentlemen!
Apart from this little incident, I hope everyone had a good time, and can take something positive (and some points to work on) towards the Regatta Season. Fantastic work and commitment all the sessions. Many thanks to Chihiro for coaching; Rupert for sorting Food (5 stars Menues, I believe I gained a few pounds instead of lose them), James for driving the trailer, Stu and Alan for coming around and help. Really sorry if am forgetting someone.
