South Coast Group Fitting Out Supper
The weather forecast was not good with strong winds and rain, but two boats – Wellwisher and Harmony of Hamble – managed to brave the elements and were welcomed alongside by the Marchwood Yacht Club’s OOD, Alan Saunders – also a Westerly Owner. The remainder – whose boats were mostly not yet in the water – came by car.
All told, we had a total of twenty-seven members for the dinner. After pre-dinner drinks at the bar, we all sat down for the arranged three-course dinner, provided by the Club’s caterers. After the dinner, our Rear Commodore, Alan Rand, presented the Rayner Challenge Plate to Mike Wren for his excellent log “Remembering a North West Passage Trip to Canna in 2013” which appeared in the WOA spring 2018 newsletter. This had been announced officially at the national AGM, but this was the first opportunity to present the plate to Mike in person.
Many thanks to the officers and staff at MYC for the excellent organisation and warm reception at the club.
