The Annual Laying-Up Supper was an extremely enjoyable affair. With good food and good company at the Swallowtail, Members and guests danced the night away to the familiar old melodies from the 70s and 80s.
The Heybridge Basin Rally was changed to Fambridge (14/15 Sept). Inclement weather forecast for the weekend being the culprit. A mere handful of members met in the FerryBoat, with the crew of Jackalope braving the elements for a speedy cruise upriver.
The Bradwell Marina (changed from Shotley Marina) Rally Sat 31 August was well attended with seven yachts and 8 skippers on station, Reality, Storm, Jackalope, Parana, Kyla, Vamoose and Dry Fly. Half-points to Spindrift for crewing on Storm and full marks for Kyla on her second outing this year. The ex-skipper of Shirias II came by road and a good evening was had by all in the ‘Green Man’.
