Frances & Ed Maggs won last years' Hanson trophy for their log of their very slow circumnavigation of the British Isles in their gaff ketch Betty Alan. The last three summers have seen them in the SW and W of Ireland, and they will be showing pictures and bragging about their good fortune.

There is plenty of parking space. The Blackwater Sailing Club are rebuilding their club house and we will have our talks in the Cadet Room. Space is limited so please book early.

As usual the bar will be available. Please note that the CA now need to subsidise the bar if the takings are not sufficient to cover the cost of opening it so attendees are encouraged to make make full use of the facilities. (Except of course for your designated driver!)

A flyer is attached, please print for your sailing club notice board. Find this event in our online bookings facility or contact the section secretary at BSC members can sign up at the club. You can turn up and pay on the door but we won't promise a meal unless you have booked.
