Similarly catering hasn’t restarted yet so please bring pack lunch etc. The bar has been open for limited outside table service only and hopefully should be available. Parkstone merlins are looking to provide some form of snacks for our return to shore on the Sunday.
Several sailors have been in contact wanting to make a weekend of it, so all are welcome to join club racing on Saturday, warning signal is 2.25pm. More details on the forum.
