Update on Christmas Jolly (4 – 6 December 2009)

Monday, October 5th, 2009

PM Friday 4th. – PM Sun. 6th. December –  Christmas Jolly

As of 13.11.09 we have Five boats signed up.  It is not too late to book.  We only need two more people to get Six boats on the water.

This is your last Opportunity to sail with the club in 2009 and probably the biggest social event in our calendar.  The cost is £100 a head for 2 days sailing and includes Christmas Dinner at the Red Duster in Cowes.  This cost excludes wine and any boat specific costs such as a share of fuel, food (other than the Christmas Dinner) and marina fees.  Beginners and new members welcome.

If you are wondering, how can this be, then you haven’t had your ear to the ground recently – it is solely that a month or two back, the Club decided to subsidise a couple of events and this is the second and last – so take advantage of it while the going is good – Could we possibly get back to FIVE boats on the water like we had some years ago???
