Wonderful week in Venice in early June. Not much wind this year but as always the hosts were lovely. Here are some photos:-

Sorry! Haven't learn't how to post more than one photo at a time. Here goes again!
The following is the Raid video which gives a flavour of the event. If you are very hawk eyed you can get a glimpse of Winkle (and a grey haired old man). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__19p--RLQ8

Sorry again! (Two of the same photo). Here are a couple more -then I'll go away!
Molly in the foreground of the first photo is a lovely replica Whale boat sailed (and rowed) by a delightful crew from Henley. This is about as close as I ever got to her as she is very fast.
On returning home I decided to make a lifting rudder as I am fed up with running aground. I don't know about anyone else but Winkle runs aground ruddder and stern first, so it is extremely difficult to get off single handed. New rudder is just about finished so I will post a photo in the relevant place.

Hi Gwilym.
They only do the full Velaraid every other year, so the next one is in 2016. I try and do the Semaine du Golfe in Morbihan http://www.semainedugolfe.com/ in the intervening year - See you there?
