Congratulations once more to all our trophy winners, and to all the ‘podiums’ who featured at the presentation. You can find the full Roll of Honour here.

Thanks again to Barry for masterminding the catering, Bridget for her superb cooking, her brilliant team of young helpers and cadets, to Donna and her friendly smile behind the bar, to Peter Gould for the slide show technology, to BSC for the use of the clubrooms and galley, and to Jenny for presenting the trophies.

A special Thank You to Peter Ward for timing the launch of the new website to coincide with the dinner – it looks great, and we look forward to further developments. All suggestions welcome.

Several people have asked me for copies of the slide show photos. Just email me to say what you’d like – a full set, or just those of your boat.

The first Newsletter of the year will come out shortly, inviting your registration forms, declarations, and subscriptions. The IRC renewals are proceeding – any new boats or members who want to participate please let me know – we continue to get a block discount this year.

Time to get Fitting Out!
