What a weekend!
International Women’s Day was a great success, with over 120 women and men coming
down to the club to hear more about activities in Brightlingsea. The club proved the perfect
venue to host the event and was buzzing all afternoon. Watch out for a follow up in 2019.
Mothering Sunday – A big thank you to Jacqui and Tim for cooking a wonderful carvery. We
were delighted so many people took the opportunity to come along. The ladies certainly all
enjoyed a glass of Prosecco on the house.
Calling all volunteers – Peter needs some help sanding down the hulls of the 3 Sonatas
to get them back into the water by the end of March. Please bring your own sander, if
you have one. Please call Peter on 07591264000 to get in touch and set a day.
