Evening all, just a quick thank you to Paul and Chris for coming along. Gerald and Andy for wanting to come but life not quite working out so they could make it. 

As Paul said it was a fab days sailing and it was a shame the wasn't more people there to enjoy it.

I hope everyone who could get out on the water and didn't come because they were racing at home helping grow their own fleet.

This isn't the thread to discuss it but I feel the class as a whole needs to decide if more needs to done to support events on restricted water.

A sincere "thank you" to Jonathan and "Bosun Bob" for organising a fab day at MKSC. A cracking breeze, simple/great courses and bacon butties as we arrived; what more could we ask for? MORE SUPPORT!!! What a crying shame that there were only three if us there to enjoy MKSC's hospitality and excellent facilities/lake. If I can travel from 80 miles from Nottingham and Chris Troth from Birmingham, where were all you Thames Area peeps? P  >:(

With the weather forcast looking dodgy ie. rainy and 5 guesting 6 (or skiffy "blowing snot to dogs off chains with rabbits in the park, mate!") completely understand if you 2 want to give travelling to MK a miss.

Brilliant Chris look forward to seeing you and Bouncer on Sunday. I have also heard rumours Gerald will be coming along as well so there should be some good racing. Shame the weather is going to be a bit dodgy though can only hope windguru is wrong about the rain.

Unfortunately now Bouncer's mast is in 2-piece form, it looks like I won't make it to this one. :(

Yeah it turned out to be a good call in the end as the wind never really showed up in MK as well. The good thing I got few jobs done on the other boat.

Good to near you are getting on well with Ella, I remember her when Nigel Waller had her and she's a well built ship.

Yes, it was a last minute decision to come as we still need to pick our days.  As it turns out Sunday was completely devoid of wind here in Bristol so maybe not so great in MK either.

Ella is going well for a slightly tatty 27 year old racing dinghy.  We won our Wednesday evening series race tonight and to the delight of my son we're temporarily leading the series (won't last)!

30th July is possible for us; I'll keep an eye on the forecast  :)

Hello Andy

Sorry I didn't realize you were planning on coming along, I hope postponing the event hasn't messed up your weekend plans to much.

To make it up to everyone we planning a sausage sizzle for lunch on 30th.

How are you getting on with Ella BTW?

Morning Yoteeez

Due to a number of factors including the MKSC changing rooms being out of action the 12 open tomorrow has been postponed till the 30th July.

See you all in July

Just a bit of an update.

Milton Keynes SC changing rooms have been under going refurbishment unfortunately the project has over run. This means only the disabled toilet will be available and the changing rooms should be available for changing only but the showers will not be. Other than this the running of the open meeting will be unaffected.

On another note we are planning to offer bacon butties for rigging and plenty of cakes for tea time.

see you on the 18th June
