Today The Brass Monkey race series kicked off at Erith Yacht club. EYC members and LNS students and staff hit the water to battle each other and the elements. After a surprisingly fast recovery of all boats during which I successfully de-rigged my first Feva with Eric and Sankofa, we tucked into hot soup courtesy of Shakira Choudry. It was just perfect. Find some photographs I snapped from our safety boat helmed by Ed Sumner below.
