Do we still need to wash our boats before we come in?

We are supposed to, and obviously if stuff is provided we will be expeted to use it. I'd allow time to wash boats, and just have a cup of tea if they water board forget the wash stuff.

£15 - cash or cheque. Bacon butties £1.50. Got to be good value. Forecast excellent. Come and play.

Phil Mason (one of the safety crew) has uploaded 373 photos on to the Club website. A lot of smiling faces - must be one of you in there somewhere.

Thanks Peter. I am sure my smiling face will be in there somewhere, maybe not on the first run of the first race though!!

I've got the Blithfield report,and some photos from Don Stokes, but they were to small to use on Y&Y.

Don - are you able to send me larger versions of a few of you photos please? 800px wide.

Ben Archer - you didn't respond to my email, so I must have used the wrong address? Which is the right one?

Blithfield - can I copy your photos for use of Y&Y please? I'd need permission...

Some of you may be wondering why there were no boats from Midland at the Blithfield event, one our mates in the Midlands. Our Club was fully committed to the Southport 24 hour race (3 boats), where we came 5th. Well done to Rich, Richard and many others.
The other traveller Merlin sailors were running a Level 2 course at the Club.

Therefore, apologies to our friends at Blithfield for weak support.

MROA dinner on the 26th Oct! at MSC.
