Already has been by Chalky, will flesh it out both in boat chat and events as more details become available, was your 14 brown trousers orginally owned by Tom Trevelyan? I remember it when he used to bring it down to London Corinthian looked great with it's TVR style stripe!

Yes, it is Tom's old boat, now painted blue but complete and original, needs a bit of TLC but sails ok still.

So it looks like 3 or 4 14s already making the right noises.

Interest from the 14s is looking good. Surprising that the 12s are being outnumbered.

The plan so far for us would be to do Hunts, have a few days holiday, then to Aldeburgh before comng back to somerset.
I'll bring Int 14 no 483.
So the fleet grows even more!

As we want to make it a great event off the water too, any suggestions/preferences to the Saturday night music appreciated, i.e Blues? Folk? 70s/80s Tribute Band?

I wonder if there might be scope here, between the two events, for us to do the distance cruise some of us have been thinking about? If we're taking holiday anyway?

Keep it cheap and cheerful - most people just seem to like to chat over a pint or two - Adnams maybe?
