Tammy Matters

Dear all

Well we certainly had a bucket load of wind for the regatta on Sunday 9th.  Well done to al the competitors, especially the first timers.  Thanks also the organisers for providing a fun day.  The report follows on the website.  We have loads of photos which is great and say far more than any words.

The Cadets are holding their regatta on Saturday from 2-4pm.  The event will include the opening of the Cadet Room.  Lots of the training students took part in the Autumn Regatta and it would be great if they joined in the Junior Regatta.  Please email Andrew Harris on andy.harris4@outlook.com who is organising.  Yummy cakes to follow the racing.

Remember remember everyone that the Commodore’s BBQ is on Sunday 16th after the racing.  A glass of Pimms (or non alcoholic version) to be followed by the BBQ from 1230.  All are welcome, especially the newer members.  Please indicate interest by e mailing Nicky Johnson on nickyjohnsontamesis@gmail.com.
