Hi all,
Tricia and Mark have been beavering away on club matters recently and asked me to put out this rumination on Thursday.....and I forgot!  It's all good info.

On Covid, hopefully the PM will give us an isea when we can restart activities from our club premises on Monday.  Having been around the block a few times now regarding this I'd expect an update from the RYA sometime Tue/Wed.  As soon as I get it I'll let you all know.
