I'm confused by your two posts!
 
What's on offer for £8.50 on Saturday?? 
 
Starter 
Soup or veggie spring roles or is it either? (Seeing as its a land full of sheep why no meat spring role?) 
 
Main 
Pie (what's in them?) Lasagne or Sweet and sour chicken?
 
Sorry buts its not very clear to me

A big thank you to Ian, Angela and the all the team at Pwllheli for putting on a great weekend. The wind blew, the waves rolled, and the sun shone. Yesterday was quite possibly the best sail we have had in a long time. Please can we have those conditions for the 6 days of the champs!
