The New Sign

Hi Guys , just a quickie , We have managed to get the new sign up , we had to wait a while for the cold weather to abate , and then Colin ( the architect ) and myself ( the tradesman ) went down with tools in hand and tall stepladder and  got it up , The Fox and Hounds very kindly letting us use the steel Post in their car park. By the way they do a very nice Sunday lunch and have also said we are very welcome if we wish to use the pub for meetings in the future . May I suggest that some time in the future perhaps after sailing we all call and have a swift half !!! any way all for now , But i would just like to mention the first I.O.M ranking event is being held at Bartley green sailing club on the 3/4 March ,and is being run by Bourneville model boat club, all details can be found on the M.Y.A website , at present I am the only Lincoln member attending but please dont let that put you off ,
I will try and publish a full report on my return


Hi everybody , the ice has gone and the weather looks good for Sunday for some I.O.M racing ,I am sure you are all as I am chomping at the bit after a few weeks inactivity,  Make sure you wrap up warm because there is going to be a chill in the air , the wind should be good so make sure you come with your B suit, you just may need it . Unfortunatley I do apolagise but I will not be there on Sunday as I am chasing the midland district winter series 5 at Manor Park. During the week Colin and myself erected the new sign at the entrance between the lane and the Fox and Hounds I hope you like it, . Thats about it for now

Have a great sail on Sunday
