Vets and Ladies Day This Thursday Don't be shy, the sun is hot, the water is warm and there will be beans, bangers and mash served in the clubhouse to bolster you after your efforts. The bar will, of course, be open as usual. Spectators, Supporters, in fact any hungry or thirsty members are all very welcome. N.B. There will be club racing as usual and the social part will go ahead even if the wind deserts us.
Club Racing Last Sunday I counted at least 16 boats on the water which is the best we've had this summer. Well done Brian Mac in the Race Hut, Mike R and Stuart J in White Eagle and a big thank you to Caroline T for the scrumptious sandwich lunch.
Monday Evenings in the Clubhouse Bar The Luggers programme is well and truly underway. They make a fine sight on a Monday evening. The clubhouse terrace is a fine viewing platform. And thanks to Derek and Adam, the bar is open for a welcome sundowner. This turned out to be very convenient last night when there was no wind for sailing. A Big, Big Thank You to Annie B and her team of Monday Night 'Pie Club' helpers - We are extremely fortunate to be served such a great meal every Monday. Thank you all very much Ladies and a special mention in dispatches for Mary 'slip Colin an extra flake' H !
