    I can believe Brexit might one day happen, but not Tony has been invited to be deputy chairman of the ATYC.

    I knew of this a little while ago, following a recent conversation with Tony and have got to admit I'm very surprised by it, given the somewhat less than friendly reception Tony received from the ATYC when he started up TMBA.

    I guess that just goes to show that they (ATYC) have come to recognise the hard work Tony has been putting in on behalf of Thames motor-boaters.

    Does this mean he'll be off to G&H Military for a new coat with braid AND we'll have to dip ensigns when we see him?

    Buy Broom and automatically gain the right to join the ranks of the Thames Aristocracy............?.
    Believe this also involves Droit du seigneur and the right to create excessive wash on the Thames without consequence.

    What a load of unmitigated drivel you utter at times, Fred. Thanks for the good wishes and delighted to learn that RCC enjoyed the WID Rally and are now a member club of ATYC.

    I believe D de S involves subordinate women and I've never met any on the Thames
