The 2015 Laying-Up Supper was a splendid and well attended occasion with the usual fine fayre supplied by Teresa and her team.
Caroline Gill and her Team of volunteers (too numerous to mention!) made the tables look so lovely and organized a quiz just in case we ran out of conversation (but that couldn't happen) and grouped everyone with their friends, so a job very well done and much appreciated by all.
The hall kept filling up with arrivals for the pre-supper drinks and Prizegiving which all played out with much applause and other noises off (whistles and cheers) and general hilarity.
Liz managed to get in a few words of thanks to the many donors, past and present, of the amazing variety of cups, salvers, shields and trophies. And last, but not least, a special thank-you to Johnny Feibusch for polishing all 58 silver trophies.
The interesting, inspirational and well- written Logs, one of which also has some stunning photos, are available for you all to read by the fireside this Winter.
In addition, you can reminisce about the evening with photos taken by Mike Bellegarde and Julia Cleverley of the evening.
Your Sailing Committee is working hard on the Programme for 2016, so you can start to look forward to next season as soon as the Christmas festivities are over! Make sure you get all those Winter jobs done on your boats so that they don't let you down when you want to enjoy sailing them!
Happy Christmas - I hope you all get lots of new sailing kit!
