This year’s summer star party season was kind of a reverse to last year.  The early and middle parts were particularly plagued by ill-timed spells of unsettled weather, most of which settled over us on scheduled event evenings! 

Our Regatta events hardly got off the ground, although strong winds certainly carried plenty of other stuff off the ground.  There were no sunspots again and the Perseids were clouded out, as well as subjected to strong moonlight. 

Folk week events fared better, but were not vintage, however both the Bank holiday events proved very popular held in very un-bank holiday type conditions. 

Hook’s House was excellent and Westerdale. To summarise, well a bit of a struggle really, certainly until late August when matters improved.  But it’s only a C- this year
