Re: Goose neck wanted

Pah - what a disaster - Key Lime Pie in a dog - bet it didn't really appreciate it. Maybe it was worried that it would have the same effect on the East Coast Mafia as spinach on Popeye. Better ask the East Coast Mafia Godfather the great Fish!

Re: Vintage Yachting games.

Re: Heron dinghy bits.

Hi Steve The first thing to do is to go to the Heron website at http://www.heron-dinghy.org.uk/ There are class rules about what you can and can't do, but the class publish a wealth of information sheets.

Hi Roger

I can be there on Sunday from about mid/late morning. I have a late job the night before so I would appreciate a not too early start.

I have a press pass so don't need a ticket to get in.

Cheers
