This year, in June, the club held a very successful jaunt to Portavadie where a pontoon party was followed by a good meal in splendid surroundings. The wonderful weather which June is delivering these days certainly helped and the prevailing view of those attending was that a repeat in 2011 was in order. Unusually, this event did not take the form of a race but it has been suggested that the Club could do more to offer pursuit races to encourage those who are somewhat intimidated by conventional starts (and with Stewart Toy around the start line who could blame them! ). The Portavadie outing would seem an ideal opportunity for a pursuit race and the Committee are keen to hear the views of active members on this suggestion. Please use the comments facility at the end of this post to state your views.
