Keeping in Touch

At last some signs of normality returning after the last difficult months. Boats are back on the water and we have had our first cruise. Monterey, Stella, Bo Skip, Aquilo, Pennyroyal and Stardust had a good day trip to Lulworth on Sunday with light winds and sunshine, although a little cold. The next cruise will be the trip to Yarmouth on 21 May. Chris has booked berths for 9 boats so I hope you will take these up and enjoy a weekend in the Solent. We will be boatless and will also be on our way to Cornwall that weekend for a belated Anniversary celebration so won't be able to join you.
Most of you know that Chris and Tess have departed from Weymouth on their long summer cruise around Britain. I am sure they will keep us updated on their progress and I look forward to an interesting talk next winter.

We have had some good news from Castle Cove in that we can resume our Tuesday evening socials from 18 May (unless there is a sudden u turn from the Government) when the bar will be open. We will be able to sit inside in groups of six although I think I will have to act as bar waiter for the first few weeks. If you are not away cruising please come along for a chat and a drink - it is a great way to get to know fellow members better.

Until we are able to meet up again I hope some of you are able to get out on the water and do what we do best - sailing!
