Floods 2007


I remember the floods of 2007 when the stream topped its bank and ran into the lake at the entrance to the club and at two points towards the far end of the lake.  The worst of the flooding was on the 22nd of July when Barry and Pauline went Buzzing around the lake.

By 29th July the waters had receded somewhat, but the septic tank required the attention of Tony and Ian.  This was also the last time that Mike was seen sailing a real boat.  Can you believe that it was six and a half years ago?  As I recall, racing was cancelled.

What intrigued me was that having received an e-mail from Laura announcing that racing had been cancelled on 12th January, I thought that the picture of the jetty looked familiar.  Clearly, the picture accompanying Laura's mail had been taken in the winter as the trees are bare, but the planks which are wet and those which are dry are surprisingly similar to those in the 2007 pictures.  What do you think?
