Revtangen September 5th-7th

September 5th was the last day of settled weather. On the 6th we just managed to squeeze in 2 hours of catching before the rain set in. On the 7th there was a few rainshowers and increasing ESE, we had to close most nets around 13 because of too much wind. We had a visit from 12 student from Bryne VGS on the 6th and 22 students from Sandnes VGS on the 7th.
