Who's on Mayfair, and what's she like?.  She always looks well presented whenever we've seen her.

I enjoyed myself yesterday. Lucky there was a snooker round at the beginning of the quiz because Cian and I struggled a bit after that. 

Shame I made a twit of myself trying to exit the mooring this morning. I forgot to switch the steering back to 'top' after starting the boat and by the time I'd corrected the boat was all over the place. Thanks to Polly and Cambridge Cabby for helping.

Maxwellian (Nigel?). I can't speak for the interior but it did indeed look nice and he was full of praise for the boat and Maycraft. Parking arrangements at Potter sound much better than I've been led to believe so I can see myself hiring.

“If you pass through Horning which I suspect most of you will ........... WR is moored on the river side between the New Inn and the Swan.  Currently looking pretty smart thanks to winter work.”

 

She looks lovely!

Hi Gang

Thanks to all for a great weekend. Good to put names to faces. Also to be in your company, although the weather could have been a little warmer and drier I don't think it dampened the spirits.

Thanks must also go to Polly for her organisation and to Mike (Chameleon ) for the quiz but also to him and Pat for putting up with me for the weekend

Here's to next years

And for a lot of you see you at Beccles in August

Sorry we didn't get to say hello to everyone. Had been a long day for Ros and I.

Work in the morning till 13.00hrs on Saturday then a two hour drive from Clacton to Acle and three hours at the helm to Salhouse...........Was kind of shattered.

A couple of beers and dinner and we hit the sack:default_biggrin:

Thanks to the team for putting on a great event again. Next time hope we may have a little bit more time to spend with everyone.

Video of us arriving at the meet about 18.00hrs last night.
