It could have been a howling north westerly, raining cats and dogs and 8 degrees, but instead last Tuesday was a perfect day for Franklin Primary to finish their 'on the water' program with a sail around South Egg Island.  It was the culmination of a very busy six weeks.  Doug, Endra, Graham, Rob and the safety boat team have escorted all sorts of school groups, adults and children, as they practiced for Swiftsure Regatta and learned some basic boating skills.  Southerly, Peter, Ros and many others have captained rowing and sailing crews, and in the background Liz Emery has tried to make fiscal sense of it all so that we haven't gone broke in process.  It was good while it lasted, but they all deserve a Christmas break!  Photos below from Graham Wright and Doug Emery.
