Podium Place for Roy .... Yet more good news from the waterfront! Travelling abroad is becoming the big thing, and we have heard that Roy Hart also made the wet and windy crossing of the Thames estuary to compete in the Swale Barge Match in his 19ft gaffer 'Greensleeves', again securing a place on the podium. Well done!
Update on Red Diesel .... Looking further afield, it would seem that the Belgian government has decided that there will be no further fines levied on British flagged vessels carrying red diesel until a planned meeting of the EU Committee on Excise Duty on the 18th September. For the next 6 weeks it appears that Ostende can be back on the itinerary for the cruising fraternity.
This week's specials ... As already reported, it is a quiet week in the Club, with no formal functions planned for this weekend.
Our specials this week have a distinct Asian flavour:-
- Lamb Rogan Josh, and
- Vegetable Curry (Butternut Squash, Spinach and Chickpea)
both served with rice and the usual curry accompaniments of Poppadoms, Chutney and home made Onion Bhaji. Just the thing for this wonderful summer weather we are enjoying!
Then, it's onwards and upwards towards Cadet Week!
