We are the victims of our on sucess in that the greater the numbers the less the YC can cater for choice. At 60 we are near the maximum number - hence we needed to make one choice.
The menu Fergus suggested would please the most and I agreed is:-
Rocket and smoked ham salad with melon sorbet
Steak with maitre d'hotel sauce
There will be a vegi option please advise me if you want vegi.
Price is 35Euro collected at the table in CASH!!
Extra wine and drinks ordered at the table must be paid for on delivery.
I am sure you appreciate the YC cannot keep tabs on a group of 60-70 with individual drinks bills (there will be a quantity of wine included with the meal) or a few individuals wishing to pay by credit card. I get the total bill and need to pay it. This has gone well in previous years with one person from each table collecting that tables money and your co-operation is appreciated. Please be ready for the odd crew member that sits on another table to be able to pay for the meal on that table.
Last year a number of boats sat their crews on a number of tables and the complete mix seemed to work very well. Please discuss with your crew whether they want to do this this year and don't all fight to join the table with the attractive woman as she will most likely already be married to a fellow formite!!
Most important - enjoy!!
