The annual pre-season relaunch of RSC Oyster committee boat takes place.
It is always a tricky manoeuvre launching RSC Oyster safely back down the Restronguet Sailing Club club slipway before putting her on the mooring each season. It is a job club members Tom Laity, from Trefusis Barton Farm, and Brian Phipps, from Windsport, have been carrying out for many years. It is certainly a tight squeeze between the club house and dinghy park racks with only inches to spare. The pair are becoming well practiced in the nuances of this procedure that requires some exact manoeuvring and clear instructions.
With Oyster safely on her mooring for another RSC sailing season, the only job left for the pair to look forward to now will be the return trip at the end of the year!
