Dear Member,

Our Gosport Meet last weekend  was well-attended although the weather deterred most boats (if not their skippers) from getting to the Friday evening muster - but more of that when we get round to a newsletter.

Our Lymington Rally on 5-6 October, with dinner at the Lymington Town Sailing Club, is fast approaching. 

The booking form is attached and we hope you can join us there.
