    Default I have been chatting with another about Annual Event !!

    I must be a glutton for punishment ....

    But the proposal is to make this an Annual Event. Possibly rotating venues or staying with Yarmouth ... as it has bad and good weather possibilities ....

    So at present it is Yarmouth May Bank Holiday Weekend Annual YBW Meeting........

    So who's in favour ??

    You must be mad, but it's a good idea.

    Could you arrange for a little less wind next time? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Sounds good. I'd be interested in the statistics: boats promised, how many got there and what types, not to mention increase in your blood pressure, hair-pulling, nail-biting etcet.

    Great idea Nigel, count me in. Sort the wind out F3/4 would be nice, keep the rain away and the sun out. Great mix of sail and mobo made it perfect and friendly. Start collecting prizes for raffle, awards etc. Thanks again, had a great time.

    Default This event numbers FYI

    Original meet total was 31 boats. 18 for Hayles, 13 for HM pontoons.

    Of that 14 arrived at Hayles and a variable number at HM .... I estimate that possible max number that made it - even if left on sunday etc. ----- silly sods - missing the BBQ !! .... maybe 24 - 25.

    It was surprising that the Sail part were the least represented and had most failed attendance. The MOBO's near all made it. Second that the smallest sail made it !! Sorry about that - but being second smallest sail-boat at 25ft .... was surprised that others didn't. Smallest arrival was ~20ft (MOBO) .... largest was 43ft MOBO. With all sorts inbetween.

    During the Sunday BBQ ........ we were entertained by Air-Sea Rescue + Lifeboat drill ..... Tall ship under full tops and royals going through Solent ..... and GC1's humour !!

    Second smallest sailboat....... When did the sails ever leave their covers apart from when you dropped the mast!!! Hope the mast is now OK and furling gear working.
