    Default Lakes Classic OCSG meet.

    Is anyone on here planning to attend the Lakes Classic meet at Ullswater this weekend? It was really enjoyable last year and there was a great turn out.

    Yes - hope to be there. I'd better be as I'm organising it! Provided I escape from Yorkshire that is. Scarborough is lovely but wet...

    I'm intending to attend. Will there be sunshine and wind?

    Will you and Andy be picking up your new canoes Chris?

    The new boats won't be ready in time unfortunately Adam. I'll be there anyway (although SWMBO has decided to give it a miss as she doesn't fancy sitting in a puddle in the bottom of my existing canoe!) The weather looks like it'll be mixed but it was a fantastic meet last year and the facilities are excellent at UYC. Great news that you're planning to go.

    Had sunshine and wind in Cumbria today - hope Keith doesn't bring the wet stuff back from North Yorks.
    Hoping to attend - it's one of the best venues ( and I wasn't just thinking of the food !).

    I'm going to set off tomorrow morning so I hope to be at UYC by lunchtime to try and grab a sneaky sail in the afternoon.

    Sunday looks okay as well and I don't have to rush home this year.

    Sorry about the low res, dunno why but it uploaded like that (even though the original footage is in HD).

    I got this picture of Seabeggar on Sunday morning (nice to meet you Craig). I've put some other pictures on the OCSG Facebook page (as have others).

    Looks like a great meet with plenty of wind and little rain.

    I've redone the video and uploaded it again to improve the resolution (obviously the clips used are the same ones). It should be a bit clearer in this version.
