The racers had enough wind to get them round the course in the morning.  All the crews were treated to either a Christmas Pudding or a box of chocolates.

Over 100 of us then sat down to a fabulous Christmas lunch, in a very festive looking clubhouse. The event was topped by a visit from Santa.

Heartfelt thanks go to Nicky Johnson for masterminding the event, Chris Pollard for leading the carols and designing and printing the menus, the members who helped decorate the clubhouse, prep the meal and laid tables on Saturday, Jo Carstens for leading the catering staff – pictures of most of them below, not to forget of course Santa who brought his presents all the way from the North Pole.

A great time was had by all – young and old.  It’s lovely to see so many families enjoying the club.

We didn’t want to forget absent friends so we raised a glass to Brian Southcott and Peter Simpson who were unable to come.
