Last year culminated with the 40th Anniversary Dinner. This proved to be a great success. Returning to the Art Club, with their caterers, Encroute, was a privilege, creating an exciting ambiance for the evening. Tom Cunliffe was inspirational with a fine repertoire of stories and tales of the sea. There seemed to be a smile on everybody's face by the end of the night. It is my pleasure to announce that the final figure achieved from the raffle and donations allowed the club to donate £1750.00 to the RNLI.
The first event in 2017 is the AGM on Wednesday 1st of February. I hope I can welcome many club members and friends as we have an exciting talk from Peter Jennett and Marion Borde of their extension to the World ARC up the east coast of America and Canada to complete a unique trip including Greenland, Iceland and the Faroes. They christened this trip the "ARCtic".
Secretary Graham will be sending notifications of this and all the other events in 2017.
I do hope to see you on the water this season. There will always be a warm welcome on our new yacht 'Katya'.
