Local Groups 2013:

East Coast:

The East Coast's 2013 Winter Lunch will be on Saturday 2 March. As previously, it will be as guests of the Haven Ports Yacht Club at Levington Marina on the River Orwell. We assemble at 12 noon. It is a very friendly pub lunch which is always good fun in good company so please do come if you can. Just email Eric Orme - ormeric at gmail.com - or call 01394 648077 by 20 Feb so that he has an idea of numbers.


South Coast:

Saturday, 23rd November:  Laying Up Supper at the RAFYC, Hamble.  Full details, with the menu and booking form, can be found here


West Country:

 Jeremy Lenton (R34 Tantine) has offered to step in as the new local VP.  Please contact him for details of events in 2013.


Irish Sea:


Ian Binnie reports that he has arranged the use of the Barbeques at Loch Aline for the weekend of the 26th and 27th May 2012.  The meet can anchor adjacent to the old boathouse at the end of the loch on the south east  side and he will start the barbeques late afternoon.  Ian will send directions later and can be contacted by email.



4/5/6 May - Rival regatta yacht harbour De Blocq van Kuffeler (IJsselmeer near Almere-Haven). Saturday 5 May ships regatta followed by barbecue in the harbour. Sunday 6 May walk in the morning and coffe/tea together; afterwards sailing home.
3 or 4 November - Scheveningen. Short presentations by members and dinner. This will be not a sailing event.  We hope that members from Belgium, Germany and the UK will join us - you will be welcome !
Final details will follow later. Please contact Jannie Clement with queries here


North America:

We are spread quite far and wide with members on both the East Coast and  West Coast, the Great Lakes, and British Columbia.  Because of the distances separating us, we have not made plans for a rally this year, but I am open to suggestions and ideas how to better become interactive.  Perhaps some regional "drive-in" meets are in order.  Please let me (Rob Johnson) have your ideas.
