Unfortunately, due to the terrible weather boats were cancelled and only one IDTC member made it over to Jersey for the competition in Jersey this year. But what a trip it turned out to be, because Gwen Davies and Esme won the Novice class, very many CONGRATULATIONS. Gwen and Esme are on the far left of the photo.
