Tamesis Club

Tammy Matters

Dear all

The south east corner of England has just been treated to a glorious weekend, which is a relief after last weekend.  The club was very busy on Sunday, lots of boats racing, and many sunning themselves (or taking advantage of the shade) on the extended main balcony.  Thanks to Charles Fox for his hard work on this.

Tamesis members were also taking part in the Classic Boat Revival which was combined with the 100th anniveresary celebrations of Ian Proctor, designer extraordinaire.

We had the last of the evening races on Thursday, which unfortunately turned out to be a real drifter.  Many thanks to John Adams for his stirring reports, and to Nicky Johnson for arranging all and providing some of the meals.

We have a lot to look forward to as well.  The Autumn Regatta takes place next Sunday – details on the event page on the website.  There will be a full days sailing, lunch and teas provided (any contribution of cakes gladly received), and of course the bar will be open.  The day will be  closed with the prize giving.  This event is open to visitors and has been publicised round all the local clubs.  We are also hoping the sailing trainees will take part in the handicap race.

The cadets are having their regatta on Saturday 15th which will include the official opening of the Cadet Room.

This is followed on Sunday 16th by the Commodore’s BBQ which will start at 1230.  Free glass of Pimms (or soft equivalent) with the bbq – large portion £7, small portion £5.  All are welcome, especially the new members.

Looking forward to December, Christmas lunch has been set for a week later on 16th December.  There was concern that 9th December is too early.

See you soon
