YBW forum members met on the Isle of Wight this weekend to raise money for the RNLI

Around 25 boats full of ybw forum members and their families met at Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight this weekend for a get together and beach barbeque. The weekend was a great success and also helped to raise money for the RNLI.

A raffle was held with prizes donated by our marine magazines and a cheque was presented to the RNLI for £41 this week.

Here are some comments from our forums from those who attended:

“A great weekend, almost an adventure, and it was lovelly to put some faces to names. A great bunch bar none, my special thanks to Talbot, both Mr and Mrs, who took in a shaken stranger, and fed and watered him as one of their own.”

“Very much agree that Nigel deserves a very BIG vote of thanks. I was particularly impressed by how many people actually turned up considering weather conditions were slightly windy with the odd wave”
