I've had several enquirers through the events link so hopefully several more visitors.

Three Moths are going, there will be two from Greensforge and one from Bowmoor (me). Forecast at the moment suggest a decent breeze, maybe too much in the gusts and a bit of early morning mist followed by drizzle.....classic Baltic Wharf really!

I’ve shared the event on Facebook to the Nirrors, OKs, Miracles and any others I could think of, plus Errol Edwards put it up on the CVLSC page, so hopefully that will drum up some numbers.

Unfortunately we can’t come as I’m going powerboating. Don’t tell Nikky, but I’d rather be sailing ! :shock:

I've been asked to say that the club are planning a lunchtime presentation of local awards as a 10 year acknowledgement of the group of BWSC members that have coached youth in racing in the docks and restored several cvrda eligible boats for them. They would like our support at this presentation so please come and applaud their hard work.

We can't get a boat there now so won't be sailing.
The van brakes have packed up (master cylinder) and the car towing electrics gave up a while ago so we can't tow anything.
We may come along for a look but hope you all have a good sail.

Many thanks to the team at Baltic Wharf for another great event. Always love the ‘head of the harbour’ race. In the light wind yesterday our high rig definitely gave us an advantage. We managed to dodge the showers and the stronger blustery winds that were forecast didn’t appear! Not all were so lucky in dodging the rain!
A lovely day. Thank you.

And it was very good to see Stu and Liz and family at the end of the day...been far too long!
Also two people introduced themselves that are going to join in next year’s events with British Moths. I’m afraid I have forgotten their names but ‘welcome’ and we look forward to seeing you next year.
