In the evening the YOGAFF organisers held a welcoming drinks party on the pontoons and on Friday evening they held an excellent nautical music evening at Yarmouth Sailing Club, recapturing much of the fantastic atmosphere of the OGA 50th Rally the year before at Cowes.
On Saturday morning there was the great YOGAFF race....but very little wind! the fleet sailed and drifted over a shortened course for an hour or so and there was much confusion. Tom entered Marjory with a borrowed crew, I did not. At the evening prize giving in the Royal Solent Yacht Club, it was announced that Tom and Marjory had won their class....and the overall race on handicap - beating three times Fastnet winner Jolie Brise!!! Tom was amazed and delighted.

On Saturday afternoon the sun came out and there was (scratch built) log yacht racing in the harbour and other races for the kids (of all ages!). While others just relaxed in their yachts.
All in all, a great trip from Chichester and a fantastic time at YOGAFF. I will do it again.
