Flag Officer Forum – POSTPONED (TBC)

During 2018 the flag officers plan to hold at least two flag Officer Forums where we can update you with what we have been up to and members can bring things up that they would like to have discussed or ideas that they think will be good for the club. The first one will be held on Date TBC [see above], 8.30pm in the clubhouse. Food will be available as usual.

Summer Cruise

Cinabbar & May (from the Fareham club) are off to the eastern channel for our summer cruise this year, starting 21st July and planning to return the 5 August. The aim is to start at Fecamp and get as far as Boulogne-Sur-Mer before returning via Eastbourne / Brighton. Attached is the rough plan, obviously subject to weather, like all such trips. The navigation is pretty simple, although many of the ports are very tidal.

Everyone is welcome to join us, either for the whole trip or just part.

If you have more time off, you can either set out earlier for a slower trip to Fecamp (maybe via Brighton?) or more leisurely return.

Please let Moira or myself know if you are interested or want any more information.
