Leader Weekend in Salcombe, Devon, August 2002

Leader Camp!

Leader sailors took over the top field at Higher Rew Campsite, Combe, Devon. Boats were left down at the beach at South Sands.

The Pub Garden, lunchtime Saturday!

Happy, smiling faces of Leader sailors and their families, after a lunchtime refreshment!

Leaving Kingsbridge on Sunday.

Sunday's cruise was up to Kingsbridge, via Salcombe Harbour & Kingsbridge Estuary.

Slowly but surely!

Light airs (none existent at times!), meant very slow progress! But a beautiful blue sky and warm sun meant that this was no chore!!!

Lightweight crew helps!

Mick and Matt Fitzgerald forge ahead in the exit from Kingsbridge. These were the guys responsible instigating the water fights!
