Snowdrop Rally Postponed to Second date

Given the ice warnings for the roads between home and the boat today, the forecast for today with rain forecast for Emsworth Sunday, and the Inshore forecast below.

Plus the fact that no other boat has declared an interest, so I’m staying in the warm and going for the 17/18th March weekend!

As Michael Green, (“The Art of Coarse Sailing” and the other Coarse books) who died on 25/02/2018 aged 91 would have said;
“Curses, they’ve hoisted South Cones on Hayling Island, we shall have to go to the pub instead of going sailing”.
