It was a very wet start to the Carsington Water CAMC Club Site Rally due to storm Babet, which hit the UK on the Friday and seen flooding to many areas which included Derby, Chesterfield and some of the surrounding area's around the rally site.
Due to several roads being closed and disruption to travel seen a high number of non-attenders but everyone made the marshals aware. A big thanks goes to the staff at Carsington Water Club Site as they battled through the weather to ensure everyone got to their pitches safely.
Thankfully the Saturday dried up and made the weekend a success in the end. Many people going for "Muddy" walks around the reservoir, calling in at the Visitor Centre and visiting local places including Ashbourne. Also the local watering houses (no pun intended) were attended by several of the ralliers including the marshals.
