WHAT'S ON - SAILING
Weather says 'No' for sailing over the next few days. You might squeeze in a quick sortie on Friday evening and Saturday, but unless you have a handkerchief for a sail, it pretty much looks like Aeolus is in charge.
On that note - PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR BOATS ARE TIED DOWN - there was carnage at the beginning of the year where unsecured dinghies skewered other dinghies. Please be responsible and make sure your boat is not going become a missile.
