Club members Simon and Joe Browning, Darren Griffiths, and Simon Ellis, sailing in their respective boats, enjoyed a trip to Piel Island in glorious weather. After drinks at the Ship Inn and the obligatory walk around the island, they returned to ‘Rivendell’ for a barbecue hosted by Simon and Joe. The food was excellent as usual. Next day, instead of sailing home with the others, Simon Ellis in ‘Peter Duck’ hitched a ride on the morning tide flooding into Morecambe Bay to explore the shallow channels up as far as Ulverston. Contact was made with the natives — a friendly Drascombe Dabber crewed by local residents. All went to plan and all made it back to Wardleys Creek safely.
The following photographs are shown roughly in chronological order.

Lots of jobs completed in spite of a disappointing turnout!
THANK YOU to those members who turned up for the work party on August 8th. In spite of low numbers, the yard looks much tidier, thanks to the hard work of the members who helped:
Richard Anthony, Jack Tomlinson, Roger Walkington, Neil MacSween, Sandra Jepson (and Caitlin), Mike Smith, Dave Emmess. Tom Bradley, Bill Blenkinship, Pablo Barrs, John Bacon, John Gorse, Vic Matthews and Linda Matthews.
Well done and if your name isn’t here there will be plenty of jobs for next time.
