Tidal Nationals

The Tidal Nationals 2017 were held on the 29/30th April and the 1st May sailed out of Fowey Gallants Sailing Club.                         


Fun in Fowey - ahoy!

Ten of us took our boats to Fowey,
That's Meg ,Keith and Iain,
Plus Kate ( that is I ),
With Steve and John Paul, plus Brooker to boot ,
With Nev , Andrew and Mike - what a hoot

With weather forecast of strong winds and rain ,
We arrived and sailed on Saturday,
What fun - a good game . 

Sunday torrential rain and wind made us timid 
We waited ,so we could all get 'jiggy'  with it .

But Fowey harbour is special,
''Tis safe ! you know , 
And somehow the wind did not blow ( but the rain came down our necks !!).

Sunday and Monday we played to the masters song , 
It seemed at times that the doldrums had come along. 

But food and drink a plenty was abound ,
The odd Cornish pasty and heaven was found . 
The socials at the sailing clubs were enjoyed by us all .
Even Ross the dog was heard to say 'I want more '.

The gang planks were steep and the hills too ,
The wheelies amongst us were glad  of our crew ,
They push us up hills , not quite carrying us through ,
To the end of a weekend enjoyed to the full .
