The weather was very kind to us with bright sunshine and little wind. RARC would like to offer our thanks and congratulations to Ian, Ann and Lobster for keeping the team supplied with teas, coffees and hot food.

An outstanding team effort from everyone made for a great special event which I look forward to doing again next year. Well done Team RARC !!
