Message from the Secretary

 Hi Serpent members,

I hope you are as excited as I am about the coming sailing season and the prospect of a fun summer on the water.
I have been somewhat tardy this year and am only now ready for going back in the water. Hey - its not a race; enjoy the process. I wish I had remembered that yesterday as I can hardly move my arms today. Our winter visit to Silvers Yard in February was well attended. It was informative, interesting and most enjoyable -especially the bacon rolls. We are grateful to Duncan Chalmers for hosting the tour. As you will see from the Calendar page at the side of your screen we have a full programme of events for the season.

Our Spring Muster is only a few weeks away on 21st and 22nd May, with our usual race to Tarbert on the Saturday and the Ladies Race back to Kames on the Sunday. Dinner will be at the Starfish Restaurant with our sociable pre dinner party at the Marina beforehand. Racing or cruising, it is
our most popular muster - look out for full details and booking form a little nearer the time.

Note that our Craobh Muster will be a week earlier than in the past; it's on 15th/16th July. Many of us will be planning our summer cruise around attending that weekend event.

Our Autumn Muster will be at Holy Loch Marina this year with Saturday dinner at La Cantina Italian restaurant in Dunoon.

Lets hope for a bumper season. I look forward to seeing you on the water very soon. Good sailing and fair winds.
