An excerpt from Wind in the Willows

Weyside 2012

Well here we are at Send (just outside Woking) for Byfleet Boat Club's Weyside 2012.  We currently have 10 boats here, which is a good achievement considering the river was on Red Boards until Wednesday lunchtime and again most of Friday.  The National Trust have done everything possible to help get the boats here and we are most grateful to them for their help.

The weather forecast for the weekend is not great - but not great for anyone in the UK (especially the South East) from what I see on the Met Office forecasts.  Nevertheless we shall enjoy ourselves.
