|Allan & Alice embrace Rubber Flubber Football|
|Chaos as the blindfolded rowers round the mark!|
The blindfold rowing ended in chaos and multiple entanglements as it often does.
Football in rubber dinghies was played out more in than on the water.
Various ship's dogs fully participated in the activities and were rewarded with prizes in the Dog Show for sea dogs. Throughout the day Brian Hammett ably compered the events managing to bring some kind of sense to the disorder.
|The ladies' sculling race|
The activities continued late with song and pontoon parties.
What the honest citizens of Ipswich or passing yachtsmen in sensible boats thought of these antics we do not know but the day definitely showed that the Old Gaffers Association is in excellent form for its 50th anniversary.
