Shanties and Butley Cruise & Camp 26-28 June What a perfect weekend. A fun-filled evening of music, dancing, shanty singing and fish & chips got the weekend off to a great start on Friday evening. Many thanks to Pris, Mel, Jessica, Patricia and June for leading the entertainment and to Ben for doing the food run. On Saturday seven cruisers and three dinghies made their way to Butley Creek, where they were joined by others who came by road, for a BBQ and camp-out. The weather was kind, although it was a beat all the way down river. A fun evening was had by all on Saturday before the boats took advantage of the tide to sail back to Slaughden on Sunday morning. Thanks to Will for organising the event and to Luke for stepping in as VC cruising was ill and unable to attend. Some photos from the weekend events are now in the photo gallery.

Brudenell Race Day 20 June Almost ideal conditions for a very enjoyable day of racing. The pre-lunch race saw 5 boats out: 3 Lasers and 2 Fevas. This turned out to be a bit of a procession behind David Pegg! After an excellent BBQ (thanks to Leslie) and a few beers (thanks to Adnams) racing resumed at 2.00pm. David Abbott joined in the fun to make it 6 boats, meanwhile David Pegg decided to wipe out the morning's result by switching to the Wayfarer, with Cathy Taylor crewing. Bill Briggs set a tight course between Q buoy and Stanney, making for an entertaining sprint across the tide to get to Q first. Two back-to-back races were run over this course, David Abbott taking line honours on both occasions, but losing out under a harsh handicap. David Pegg and Will Webb both shared 1 win and 1 second place each, so the trophy was tied.
