Some reports have indicated that soup will be available at lunch time.  The Vice & Rear Commodores have been overruled (by someone they dare not upset)  -  Baked spuds + beans + cheese + coleslaw + tomato will be served (@ £1.50 each).

Round 2 results now online.
A mighty 21 merlins out yesterday, the usual hotshots fighting it out with some rockstars from other classes. Unfortunatley, the phantoms seem to be winning at the moment!

There was rumour that Blithfield had frozen is that true or false? Not sailed since the last round so was looking forwar to it.

There was just sufficiant ice to stop us launching on sunday. All marks were clear, it was just frozen around the edges including (un)fortunately the slipways.

Looking at the forecast, we will be seeing temperatures picking up to above freezing, but more significantly a change in wind direction to the south east which should clear away the ice if any remains.

A decision will be taken on Friday/early Saturday but as it stands we are planning on running it.

Hi martin It was much diminished on tuesday, more a layer of slush than ice. Ben's popping down again today, i'll let you know the outcome when i find out from him.
