Re: Banbury event

For info. - Roger - we will be taking on the DeMay merlin part of the Banbury event in conjunction with the Hunts CVRDA on September 17. I guess we will run the event in much the same way as last year which seemed to go OK!

Re: Water Repellant on Cotton Sails

I would definitely not use stick on numbers. I would suggest an e-mail to Kevan Bloor (ex. Alverbank sails). What Kevan does not know about 12 sails is not worth knowing. I have always found him very helpful. His address is: ntoa@national12.org
