Hello All

Here is the updated list of boats and head count attending this event:

Good Rum x 2
Challenge II x 2
Nikita x 1
Moonshine x 2
Petra x 4 (easier to reduce meal numbers to 2 than add 2 at this late stage)
Starfire x 2
Speedwell x 2
Capricorn x 1
Grey Goose x 2 (Not racing)

9 boats booked for berthing at SYH. The harbourmaster asked if each boat could contact him on 80 before arrival.

18 booked for a meal at 8pm at The Lightship.

For the purpose of handicaps, am I right in thinking that Petrah is the same class as Speedwell?

Hi Jose
Starfire will just be cruising up, as planned, rather than racing. The journey home looks an interesting proposition if the forecast remains the same. If any racers are interested in the Royal Harwich anniversary race (possible free berthing and a pot to win) I have been given a flyer to pass on which I can send you or bring Saturday.
Cheers
Brian

And now spare a thought for your poor racing officer who is having to resort to desperate measures to cope with the heatwave in Spain.

Hi Phil,
That’s good news Brian is coming too - do I assume that’s one more for dinner at the Lightship? Please reply ASAP so I can make the booking.
Thanks,
Mandy
