Sunday’s Outside Drinking
Many thanks to all the members that visited the front of the club and had a socially distanced drink outside and viewed the lovely tidy beer cellar on Sunday. It was a lovely bright, day. We raised around £400 for the Riverside fund. Horray!
We would also like to thank Richard Woolf, Jane White and Barry Owen-Smith who made this happen. Well done guys!
Thank you to Lucy Read for the photos

Calling all of you interested in cruising.
The next Cruising Zoom meeting will be on Monday 11th January, at 8pm.
Many thanks to the 18 people who took part enthusiastically in the first meeting on Monday.
Conversations included many cruising ideas, including the Baltic, Holland, going north, and more comfortably perhaps going south including the Blackwater, Chatham, London and down to Ramsgate and further along the south coast. Probably far more ideas than most of us can cram into one season!
We appreciated that the season needs to start gently, as almost all of us will be well out of sailing practice! We also talked about some training and refresher ideas available online and locally.
Caravanning/campers and cruising: we talked about having options to combine both activities to widen the scope for members who would like to get involved in our social activities, using venues such as Aldeburgh, Walton on the Naze, and the south coast.
Any programme will need to be very flexible depending on future Covid restrictions, as well as the usual tide/weather considerations, but we are all looking forward to enjoying a great season for 2021.
Any members are welcome to join our next zoom meeting in January.
Wishing everyone a peaceful, safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
