    Default ATYC

    'Twas the ATYC Rally at Kingston last weekend. not a whisper on here about it - did anyone go?

    Rumour has it that number of boats attending was down.

    Went through Kingston Friday afternoon and Monday evening and saw no evidence of anything.
    Two beers please, my friend is paying.

    I believe attendance of the ATYC Kingston event is always less than that of their other events at Henley and West India dock, mostly I suspect due to it being at Kingston. Certainly among boaters I have spoken to recently, it is the location that puts them off going.

    No idea of the actual numbers but I believe it was a little down on what they were hoping for, certainly for the Sunday night main dinner.

    Loads of yobs , loads of late night waterside drinking holes , loads of nightclubs turning out loads of drunks in search of kebabs and trouble , loads of traffic on the busy road that runs alongside the river ....

    I wouldn't wish an overnight stop in Kingston on my worst enemy.

    And that is why tomorrow night the Dunkirkers (including me) will be staying with you rather than overnighting in Kingston ahead of the veterans cruise.
