Just to bring this topic to the top again! Kathryn and I booked a room for £50 last week, (no kids, hooray!) and they still had rooms left. I take it this means no one else has remembered to do it yet - hurry up, we don't want to be all lonely drinking in the late bar... (actually, no idea if there is one, but you get the idea!)

I'm afraid that Lizzy and I will not be able to come. :( We are going to be in Spain 8). Just as well for you guys as I would have to race the canoe, which could be very scary and possibly dangerous [:0]

I booked at £55 a couple of weeks ago. Did you haggle or will I have a better view.

More likely they gave us the wrong price...or we are in the broom cupboard!

But as the Canoe is 5180mm long you would not qualify!

I'm sure that soon after the start the canoe could well have been shortened :twisted:

Nice boat! I'd seen her advertized and was too much of a coward to go for it...seeing the pics, I wish I had, now! But once a coward, always a coward, I think!

Thanks Rupert. You can have a go whenever you want, and then I'm afraid I think you'll really regret it. Its just so much fun to sail (well it has been so far!!) ;)

Fully intent to be there on the Sunday, if I still have a suitable boat, but regret the Saturday evening is not possible

Regards

Lois and I booked a room and another for John and Lyn a few weeks ago. Maybe I'll check a few days before. Sounds odd.

Rupert. You bet your ass ! I've already been tempted by several, but need the space first - hence the need for the Finn to go. So far only timewasters.
