End of Season Cruiser Awards:
Whilst our cruiser fleet does not participate in regular racing,
we value our cruiser fleet equally with other craft. This year
they have played a very helpful supportive role in taking youngsters
out when possible to give seafaring experience and the thrills
of “big boat sailing”. This year’s Furthest
Cruise award goes jointly to Ray and Dot in Spartacus and Graham
and Jo in Seafever for making the voyage Lundy. It might have
been further but for the need to battle back through a strong
force 6 all the way ! Tony and Diana in Melody took the cup
as leading cruiser in Barts Bash. John and Tonia easily won
the Most Days Afloat award and in their case it might be renamed
the House Boat Cup as they really made the most of an excellent
Summer to get out on the water.
Some other boats in the harbour might take note as there is
thought being given to withdrawing moorings from those who never
use their craft, which does not seem unreasonable when there
is such pressure for mooring places.
Blingo at Tenby SC:
This is bingo with a glitzy twist ! This fun packed evening
of sparkling entertainment is open to all at Tenby SC tomorrow
night (Saturday) in aid of Tenby RNLI on whom we all depend.

They say that all publicity is good for promotion but announcing

important to ensure that 50 years of history is not forgotten
