Report on Mid-summer BBQ Weekend: 15-17 June 2012

Monday, May 21st, 2012

By the sounds of it this weekend was a windy affair (F9-11) so I imagine the BBQ was held on-board.

Perhaps someone from one of the crew involved could elaborate?

For those who missed it there is another opportunity for a BBQ later in the year. Now would be a great time to book.

NewsFlash HeadingNOW DRAFT for use as a Template (Last Updated  23  May 2010)

Forthcoming Events and Bookings Status

Channel Isles (poss. incl. St. Malo) (30 May – 6 June) – £265.–

What better place to visit than the Channel Islands, one of the many attractions being the Duty Free possibilities, but what about the scenery and the challenging tidal conditions?

Sadly it has not been possible to fill sufficient berths to make this event viable.  If anyone is interested in pursuing something similar before the end of the summer please let the committee know.

Long W/E Poole/W’mouth. (8th. July) – £213.–

The date for this event has now been fixed as above, and with six berths confirmed the event is now full.

This is a change from the confines of the Solent and offers different scenery and some open water passages coupled with the challenge of navigating in less familiar waters and “Races” to be circumnavigated!

Last year’s event was very much enjoyed! Bookings as usual via ‘yours truly’

Meanwhile with best regards.
