Bowline CC - It was a bit damp in Cornwall

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 27th August 2014 @ 6:27pm

Well I think we've been pretty lucky this year with the weather for our Bowline meets. So I guess it wasn't a great surprise that our climbing exploits this weekend were limited to Friday and Saturday. However we made the most of the good weather we had with lots of adventure climbing on Bosigran Ridge and on the Bosigran main cliffs. Plus with some teams arriving in advance of the weekend and some staying on too there was plenty of Bowliners enjoying the lovely Cornish granite.

And the rain didn't stop play completely, we just switched to different activities with running, body boarding and walking to keep us entertained. Plus visits to some of the local historical sites and the Newelyn Fish Festival. All in all and excellent weekend, thank you to Zoe Pickering for organising the meet and to all those who came for making it great fun!

If all this talk of climbing is making you want to get out on the rock the weather for this weekend looks favourable so keep an eye on your email as I will let you know where we are heading out too!

Also, those of you going on the Lundy meet I will be sending out an email tomorrow with some extra information!
