For those members who live north of the border, a reminder that every year a Launchtime Lunch is held at Gourock Yacht Club, usually in mid-March. Although this year’s event had to be cancelled due to the lock-down, please put it into your diary for next year. Come along and join us for pre-dinner drinks, a three-course meal and the chance to catch up with all the Nicholson 32 news. For details and prices please contact Simon Braunholtz here.

Simon has made the following suggestions:

Many of our members have been having sailing adventures around the coast, particularly the West coast, for a number of years. I thought that it would be nice to share some ‘favourite destinations’ with each other, with the idea that I could collate these and make them available to our fellow members to consider in their plans for future seasons. I would suggest that, if people are ‘up for this’, it would be useful if they could bash out a page of notes saying where they are referring to, and any useful points. It might be a particularly beautiful sailing area, a special anchorage, a pub you would recommend – good food or beer perhaps! – or something else. I can dig out some charts to bring along to help people demonstrate locations, but do please bring one (or include an abstract in your page of notes) if you want. If the idea works I thought we could each spend 5 minutes or so telling the group about their choice. On an entirely voluntary basis of course!
