Brisbane Bar Tide Chart

By the time this magazine reaches you, the Port Of Brisbane will have tested the possibility of bed levelling in the creek. With any luck, the test will have been successful and they will now be in the process of taking the creek down to a depth of 1.83m plus published tide. Updates will be provided on the Clubs web site and via Club Cleats on their progress. In the last edition of Cruisin News, there was a request for anyone interested in a fishing club to let the office know. I am happy to say that we had a number of members get in touch. Details are still being finalised but with luck, the new section of the Club will be up and running by the next edition of Cruisin News. Those of you yet to express your interest in the Fishing Club, please let the office know as soon as possible. A number of club members have done the Club proud recently in important sailing regattas. Commodore Phil Lazzarini and his expert crew aboard “Sassy” recently claimed the Division 3 Line Honours in the Brisbane to Gladstone race. In addition, they also claimed, First – PHRF Division 3, First Veteran Division, Second IRC Division 3 and Third PHRF Overall. QCYC also claimed the Federations Cup Teams Trophy as a result of the performance of “Sassy” along with Peter Holm (Mariah) and Steve Lugge (Arherar II). The Bay to Bay Regatta saw Peter Hacked (Intrigue) claim the Overall Corrected O.M.R.Type 3 & 4 Multihull. The 35th Vintage Yacht Regatta will be hosted by the Club on 12 and 13 June. Do not miss all the excitement and spectacle at the club. Also, Pure Blonde will be hosting a fantastic party with live music and beer tasting on the Saturday night; all are welcome. As a result of space constraints in this issue, we have had to delay publishing Part 2 of Long Reef’s epic voyage home until the next issue of Cruisin News. Look out for this tremendous tale in our forthcoming Spring Edition. Lastly, in the previous edition of Cruisin News a number of images were inadvertently credited to J. Gidlow.

COMMODORE’S REPORT The success of the Surf to City race earlier in the year was followed at Easter with one of the best managed and successful Brisbane to Gladstone (B2G) races I can remember. Our Race Manager Herb Prendagast, Nigel, Leanne and our great band of volunteers should be rightly proud of the results of their hard work. The fleet of 49 yachts set off in perfect conditions on Good Friday and held for the entire race. Herb and I have received many emails congratulating QCYC and Herb for our efforts and I would like to publicly add my thanks to the many people who, whilst I had the opportunity to thank personally at our recent B2G function, should also be acknowledged in Cruisin News. Particularly, Barry Kairl who once again was instrumental in obtaining our naming rights sponsor, “F1RST TAX AND DUTY FREE”, which allows us to not only cover race costs but provide benefits to all members through surplus revenue. Thanks to the many members who provided their services and boats to form the “spectator exclusion zone”, and Karen Sommerville, Lawrie Bingham, and Nigel Statham who traveled to Gladstone to assist Herb with the many responsibilities at that end. A special mention to Ben Sommerville who designed and developed the much talked about interactive “Tracker” web site that experienced an unbelievable 14 million plus hits this year. As a result, Herb and I have already commenced work to hopefully attract some serious advertisers to the site for the 2012 race. In other good news, I can advise that two years hard and sometimes very frustrating work dealing with the responsible State Government Dept. and the Port of Brisbane Corporation has culminated in the marina leases finally being posted out to the marina berth purchasers. I have attempted to contact most of the berth owners to answer any queries and can report that all are happy to eventually see this matter brought to a conclusion. On the social scene, it was very pleasing to see that great Australian band Rough Red performing at the club recently to a large and appreciative audience. Thanks for this opportunity go to Judy Bridgewater, our Social and Membership committee chairperson and Peter Harvey, who heads the band and is of course a member of the Club. Peter and the boys provided their services at effectively no cost to assist our fund-raising efforts. In other news, the administrative committee, chaired by Glen Sommerville has together with other Board members commenced a review of the Club’s Strategic Plan, which will allow us to refresh our goals and future direction.

The Building Committee has been very lucky to obtain the voluntary services of long time member Nev Watts as Chairman. Nev who in his position with engineering Group GHD has many years experience in construction and project management. He brings those much needed skills to the committee and our proposed building extension and grounds improvement. Some of you may recall some months ago that as a result of our strong representations to Government upon the announcement of their intention to sell our landlord, Port of Brisbane Corporation, we were informed in writing that the Dept of Transport (The Dept) would take over that responsibility in July. We have been told not to contact the Dept and responsible Minister until that handover officially takes place. Rest assured that when that occurs we will immediately commence discussions in earnest regarding the urgent need to dredge the Creek, and review our steeply climbing rent. I was recently invited together with Gary Head, our Chair of the Sail Training Committee to attend a special assembly of Shorncliffe State School to help present certificates to the students who completed, what the Headmaster believes is the first sail training subject offered by a Public State Primary School in Queensland. A truly outstanding achievement by both the School and Gary Head and his band of volunteers. You can appreciate the enormous obstacles that needed to be overcome to make this a reality. Congratulations to all involved. Genuine partnerships with the community provide many mutual benefits and form an important part of our future. Some would say, without such partnerships, our future would be very limited. I look forward to seeing as many members as possible on the water over our beautiful Winter and encourage everyone that meets the qualification criteria to enter the forthcoming Vintage and Gaffers Regatta. It is always one of our most enjoyable events. Why not just come down with family and friends to view the beautiful timber boats and chat with their proud owners over Saturday and Sunday of the Queens Birthday weekend. Fast and safe sailing, Philip Lazzarini Commodore.


NEW MEMBERS We would like to extend a very special QCYC WELCOME to our most recent new members. Welcome Aboard, and please remember that the office and all members are always ready and willing to assist you with any request or assistance. Alfred Makem

MARINA & GROUNDS As we slide slowly into the colder weather the work continues on the mulching of the fence line beds. Thanks to Billy Andrews and his mates, the work is over halfway completed.

MARINA BERTHS FOR RENT There are currently a number of berths available for long term rental.

The slipway is clear of debris after the torrential rains of January & February. It has also been pressure blasted to enhance grip for all vehicles. Having repaired the rock retaining walls and provided for large painted bricks to assist boat owners to chock their vehicles wheels someone has decided to remove the bricks and use rocks from the retaining wall instead!!If anyone knows the whereabouts of the yellow and red bricks could you please notify the office and I will gladly go get them.

These berths are suitable for monohull vessels up to 12m & 15m in length.

The large rubber ducky has recently had new Morse engine controls fitted and welding work done on the propeller guard. This will be welcome news to those people who are allowed to drive it...

12m Monohull Berth, $95K, Contact Glennis on 0417638731

I hope to complete the cleaning of the marina pontoon next week. My thanks to those boat owners who kept the area around their vessels clear of any unnecessary goods and chattles... It makes a good impression on visitors to the club and keeps our landlord in a better frame of mind. Lastly, members are reminded to ensure that they take all appropriate measures with regards to security. In particular, members must ensure outboards are padlocked to the boat when they are on the hardstand. If you experience any losses you must report it to the office as soon as possible.

VALE GRAHAM HUNTER

7

(1946 -2010)

Graham Hunter was a Sandgate boy and loved sailing with a passion. He was a member of the keen sailing Hunter family, which included his brother, Ian (1942-2003), his cousin, Leigh, and Graham’s parents, Alex and Joan Hunter. In his early teens, Graham took an early morning job at the local bakery to fund materials to build his first boat, a sabot. Anyone involved in boat building at the time, would have been visited by young Graham researching the best boat building techniques. Graham spent many happy hours sailing that sabot in Cabbage Tree Creek. He would later graduate to sailing Moths and raced regularly out on the bay. After crewing on cousin Leigh’s catamaran, Graham built and raced his own 16 foot Quick Cat. During the early years of his marriage, Graham built a Hartley 21 foot trailer sailer to include his young family in his love of sailing. As a result many memorable holidays were spent on Moreton Island, Tipplers and the Broadwater. Boat trips were not restricted to family. Anecdotes of sailing and fishing weekends away with friends and colleagues were often retold over a beer. Over the years, Graham crewed in sailing events such as the Bribie Cup, on cousin Leigh’s “Shalahn”, and a Brisbane to Gladstone on “Runaway”. In 1998, Graham bought and refitted a 38 foot cruising yacht, the “Mary Muir”. The One Mile at North Stradbroke was a favourite destination mooring but the Station Road, Deagon, mooring was where you would Euan Manly Advert. usually find Graham. Graham retired from Sunwater as Dam Safety Manager in June 2006. Graham’s health declined in March 2009 and he passed away peacefully on April 11, 2010. He is sadly missed by his family and friends. Graham led an extremely active and productive life and his sailing history is just a part of his many great achievements. A unique force of nature, he was loved and respected by many.

What awesome acceleration once this sail was set and

outbound ships just before rounding NW4. We let the first one pass us to windward and then ducked behind it to avoid being taken off course by the second one. We were in radio contact with both ships just to check on their intentions and to make sure that we were doing the right thing. The first


10 BRISBANE TO GLADSTONE ship was very polite and went to the North of the Caloundra Fairway Beacon. We were not so lucky with the second, who was determined to pass the mark to the South which meant that we had to track further to the South than we would have liked. About this time we received a telephone call from Mark Bucknall who was watching us through a telescope from a unit at Caloundra. He said that we looked very close to the ships and after the second ship passed us we ducked behind it to put up the kite for the long haul to Indian Head. Even ½ a mile away the prop wash from those big ships was like being in a washing machine. Caloundra to Breaksea Spit We flew the big blue kite all the way from Caloundra to about 10 miles South of Indian Head. Steering up when we could in the lighter airs, 15 to 18 knots, and down when the winds got stronger, gusting up to 23 knots. During Friday night we made some very big gains on the yachts around us sailing lower than the rhumb line maintaining speed rather than course and also keeping an eye on the Southerly set. By morning we had passed 7 yachts that we saw and probably another 5 that were further out to sea. The Saturday morning sked had us neck and neck with Full Bore and Scotty, very excited, because by his reckoning we were coming first in our division on handicap and line honours. We carried the No. 1 headsail for about 12 miles until we had passed Indian Head and then the asymmetric. Just after dawn we were able to see Saltash II about 2 miles astern and Full Bore was about ½ mile to the East. We were 5 miles passed Sandy Cape when we saw Full Bore round up quite dramatically, spinnaker wrapping around their mast. The radio crackled into life, she had broken her rudder and was heading for Bundaberg. We ran a little bit too deep past the rhumb line waypoint to Breaksea Spit, which cost us some time and enabled Saltash II to gain about a mile. The big blue kite went up again. Breaksea Spit to the Entrance to Gladstone Harbour We maintained our 1 to 1 ½ mile lead over Saltash II rounding Lady Elliot Island and about 2 miles in front of Shogun who was flying a big multicoloured kite which lasted for an hour

before we saw it blow out. The wind was blowing a constant 20 to 25 knots with squalls to 30+ knots. The first squall passed right over us with no change in the wind strength until it passed, then blew 30+ knots for about 10 minutes – very strange. All of the other squalls were preceded by wind, a phenomenon I have witnessed in previously. Surfing at 17+ knots with the ¾ ounce big blue kite creating speeds consistently in the low teens for minutes at a time was exhilarating stuff. Scotty was calling the gusts so I would bear away to keep the boat under control. Soon it was Scotty’s turn at the helm, chasing the record of 17 ½ knots. But Saltash II was gaining and eventually came alongside about 150 metres to the North of us. Those Saltash boys were working the boat at every wave, pumping the boom and grinding the kite. For 2 hours we went wave for wave with them until they eventually got a more favourable series of waves and edged in front. We did not mind this, because being the leeward boat she was forcing us to go higher on the rhumbline than we wanted. Scotty ducked below them and we resumed our rhumbline course. Several very nasty looking dark squall lines appeared behind us and the decision was made by Phil to drop the kite and sail under headsail until we felt confident that we could handle the situation. After the second of the squalls passed we felt confident enough to put up the asymmetric kite which lasted for about 30 minutes before I lost control and it blew out – literally – only the side tapes were left still connected to the halyard with the rest of the kite streaming across the water at the back. It took some time to retrieve it, with Scotty becoming a little anxious about losing our hard earned place in the fleet. The big blue kite went up again. Gladstone Harbour Although no yacht passed us, the trip up the harbour featured light, shifting winds and we crossed the finish line at 0154 Sunday morning.

11 Comments from the Crew “The great way everybody got along together at all times and major decisions were discussed amongst the whole crew as well. It wasn’t just one person, a major element of long ocean races is often not spoken about too much which is crew morale.”

“The other moment that stands out to me was the rather large grin on Phil’s face whilst sitting in the cockpit enjoying a beer after the finish, the best result ever for Sassy and it was great to be a part of it”. “Obviously one could never forget the ride across the paddock going toe to toe with Saltash in the rain squalls, what a blast!”. Craig Fraser “There were no ego’s on the boat. All crew worked well together, it was a cohesive effort and a great result” Scott Murphy

“A great effort by all, the experience on board allowed skipper “Capt’n Snooze, Watch the Jibe” Phil to push the boat harder than previous races”. David Bates Smith “Great yacht, great crew, great meals, great ride, great result!” Glen Somerville “ My enduring memories of the race include: The great crew work and the spirit in which it was achieved.

The hard work put in by Dave who produced great meals while still maintaining a high standard of work on the foredeck, all of which left him completely stuffed at the end. Scotty’s great helming particularly across the paddock (between Lady Elliott Island and Gladstone Harbour). Craig’s great weather calls as each squall bore down on us, one even turning an ugly green as it approached. This allowed us to carry our spinnakers through most of the squalls when other boats were dropping them, allowing us to gain distance on them. Glen’s accurate navigation which ensured we sailed the minimum miles. All in all a great race with a great crew, one I will remember for all the right reasons.Thanks guys”. Philip Lazzarini

the increasing number of newer designs eligible under the 30 years and over requirement. This Division will be run completely separately from the other divisions with a start time 15 minutes before the others.

There have been a number of changes to the format this year. Firstly, the regatta has been expanded to four divisions for this year: 1- Gaff Rig 2- Design Year pre 1970 over 10m (non Gaff Rig) 3- Design Year pre 1970 under 10m 4- Design Year 1970 onwards

The second significant change to the regatta will be that the race on Saturday will no longer be a scratch event. Using a combination of results from previous years and club handicaps, the entire regatta will be raced under a handicap. Lastly, we have included a provision for a second race on the Sunday. A decision will be taken on this on the day depending on the prevailing weather conditions.

As in previous years, Divisions One and Two will be racing together but on longer courses with upwind legs now approximately two nautical miles. For the smaller vessels, Division Three will be using a windward mark only one nautical mark from the Start Line but sharing the same wing mark as the bigger boats. However, if a vessel under 10mtr, but with suitable boat speed, wishes to race in Division Two on the longer course, they simply need to elect this before the regatta. Conversely, vessels over 10mtr are welcome to be placed in the smaller division should their boat speed be more suited to Division Three.

As if two days of racing wasn’t enough, on Saturday evening the entertainment keeps on come when the girls from our sponsor, Pure Blonde, will be keeping the atmosphere going with beer tastings which will no doubt help get the crowd dancing to popular Brisbane group “The Baby Boomers”.

The forth Division is a new addition for this year. The aim of this change is to preserve the integrity of the regatta as a celebration of classic vessels whilst also recognising

All members, whether racing or not, are encouraged to visit the Club during the weekend to admire these classic vessels up close and join in the festival atmosphere.

16 PUSSER’S RUM With the Vintage Yacht Regatta approaching in June on the Queen’s Birthday Weekend,June 12th and 13th, we thought we would have a look at one of the sponsors for this year’s race. Pusser’s Navy Rum was one of the sponsors for the 2009 Vintage Yacht Regatta as well as supporting this year’s Brisbane to Gladstone. And it seems that Pusser’s Rum has a very close relationship with sailing and the sea. For well over 300 years, from the earliest days of wooden ships and iron men, Great Britain’s Royal Navy issued daily “tot” of Pusser’s Rum to the crews of their ships and always a double issue before battle and after victory! First introduced into the Navy in 1655 as a substitute for beer, by 1731, it was in general use. From 1650 throughout the 18th century, shipboard life was incredibly difficult. The daily issue of Pusser’s Rum was the highlight of the day. Then, too in those days, battles were fought “eyeball-to-eyeball”. The mental alertness and courage required to pack a cannonball into a muzzle loader were far different from that required to operate the modern weapon systems of today. Thus in 1970, the Admiralty Board decreed that there was no place for the daily issue of rum in a modern navy, and so ended the daily issue of Pusser’s Rum in the Royal Navy on July31st,1970. This date since then is referred to “Black Tot Day”. The rum issue, one of the longest and unbroken traditions in seafaring history, ended as the last tot of Pusser’s was drunk on board Their Majesties Ships. “Round the world” in every ship of the Navy, glasses were raised in their final salute to ‘The Queen’!”.

And the name Pusser’s? Nothing more than a corruption of the word “purser”. On board ship, the purser was responsible for ship’s stores including the rum. Everything that came from the purser was called “Pusser’s” and still is today. Hence the name Pusser’s Rum! So it does seem Pusser’s Navy Rum has a very relevant association with the Vintage Yacht Regatta and the Queen’s Birthday Weekend Pusser’s Navy Rum is a Guyanese rum distilled in the world’s only wooden stave stills,which is then combined with four other Caribbean rums in Tortola giving Pusser’s a prominent flavour of toffee and a long finish textured with coffee, dried fruit and clover honey. Pusser’s Navy Rum is available in 700ml bottles, 1 Litre Ceramic Yachting Decanters,1 Litre Ceramic Lord Nelson’s Ships Decanters and Nelson’s Blood 200ml Ceramic Hip Flasks.

INAUGURAL SHORT COURSE Article by Nigel Statham Race Two produced a much tighter finish with Out of Orbit finishing just 40 seconds in front of Samurai Jack, skippered by Noel Humphreys. On handicap, Firebrand owned by Peter Bishopp, finished in 1st place ahead of the consistent Jaspa and Free Expression. With racing over for the day, “Rough Red” played live at the club on Saturday night to an enthusiastic crowd. The inaugural QCYC short course regatta was held over the weekend of the 15th and 16th of May 2010. There were two races per day, each approximately one hour in length, with all races counting towards the final placings. Race One saw Out of Orbit, skippered by Scott Murphy, cross the finish line with a healthy lead over Sean Healy on Jaspa. Once the handicaps had been calculated, Out of Orbit had just done enough to beat Jaspa to 1st place with Sassy, helmed by Philip Lazzarini, taking a fine 3rd place, backing up her recent success on the Brisbane to Gladstone Race.

Day two and another two races were planned. Both became a tussle between the three fastest boats for both line and handicap honours. Samurai Jack achieved line honours in both Race 3 and Race 4 but only managed to win Race 3 on handicap before being leapfrogged by both Jaspa and Out of Orbit in the final race. Overall, Jaspa had shown excellent consistency and took the series with three 2nds and a 1st. 2nd place went to Out of Orbit whilst 3rd was awarded to John Farmer and Doctors Orders, who with a 5th and three 4ths proved that reliability over the weekend is the key to a good result.

MULTIHULL NEWS Article by Peter Hackett The local multihull sailors have been snoozing a bit lately in order to build motivation for the upcoming winter series. The challenge is out there again to get a bigger fleet than the other types of boats, so get on it fellas. Tony Goschnick will help the numbers if he can get his 3 boats to the start line. They would probably be more stable if bolted together, Tony. Clifford Heath has got the Winged Warrior sorted, and his crew training sessions have not gone unnoticed by the handicapper. We got lucky on Intrigue in the Bay to Bay Race with an overall victory by 2 minutes over Joel Berg’s Raider. Our break came on Sunday when the leading rockets parked in front of Kingfisher Resort while we sat on sustained speeds of 18 knots, and the boats at the back of the fleet drowned in a local downpour. Bummer. This event is still the biggest on the calendar for us with 170 boats including 32 mutlihulls stretched across the scenic Sandy Straits from Tin Can Bay to Hervey Bay. The conditions generally provided great downwind rides with 10-

25 knot SE both days and plenty of underbellies showing. At least there were no capsizes this year, just a few dropped rigs, and our local Winged Warrior sustained minor mast base damage and had to retire. The flat water combined with those winds provided awesome rides, even though there was some lumpy stuff in front of Wide Bay Bar and Woody Island to add to the excitement. Finishing before 11 am on Sunday was a bonus.

18 CRUISING IN COMPANY Long Weekends!! – You just gotta love ‘em. They provide us with the opportunity to make an extended cruising trip with overnight stays and there is no better destination than one of the many picturesque anchorages on Moreton Island.

meals of Winter Whiting, celebrated a couple of birthdays, enjoyed a lunch of smoked salmon and king prawns on the multihull’s favourite sandbank, gathered for many cups of coffee and cake, not to mention the ‘Sundowners’.

Once across the bay and away from the mainland, you could be forgiven for believing you were at the Whitsundays. The crystal clear blue water and sandy bottom make it easy to catch glimpses of the local marine life. Turtles, dolphins and yes even the odd dugong if you are lucky, not to mention the numerous varieties of bird life. In short it’s a mini holiday each and every time one crosses the bay.

It must be a good lifestyle because when you see the number of other sailing boats and power cruisers who take advantage of visiting Moreton Island, all I can say is I am glad not everyone has a boat otherwise the bay would be like the M1 on long weekends – chockers!!! On Saturday night during the Labour Day weekend over 70 boats were counted anchoring at the Sand Hills. It was a very impressive sight at night because it looked like fairyland with all their anchor lights glowing in the distance.

In the past few months the ‘Cruise in Company’ group have enjoyed three weekends, Easter, Anzac and Labour Day. Each trip has been uniquely enjoyable. We have visited Deanbilla Bay, Myora, Kooringal, Crab Island, The Blue Hole, The Sand Hills and Mud Island. We have viewed the Easter Fireworks, caught a few

Enjoying Smoked Salmon & Prawns washed down with ones favourite beverage. Travelling in convoy by tender to investigate Crab Island. Exploring the mangroves at Crab Island. Sunrise over Moreton Island – best ever way to start the day.

These cruising weekends are very casual with destinations at times changed at the last minute due to weather conditions and the need to find a suitable anchorage. It was pleasing to receive so much interest from members in regard to these weekends and if you would like to join us for any future trip please contact the office so we can choose an anchorage suitable for all boats who wish to attend – weather permitting of course. Safety must always be the first priority.

SAILABILITY Article by Phillipa Bolt

As a volunteer I am always struck by the sheer joy I see in the faces of our clients when we hoist them into our little access dingy to go sailing down Cabbage Tree Creek. It is like a time of peace for them where they can just glide across the water feeling the wind and sun taking them somewhere peaceful. One client I have observed just lets his hand flow in the water as they glide along and he seems so engrossed with this connection with the water. Another client sings out “row, row, row your boat” and one cannot resist and join in with a round whether it be the skipper or the safety boat crew along side. Yes every Monday on my way home I recollect the day’s hours being involved with something a little different from the

normal routine knowing that I although have helped in some small way, I have gained so much more. Sailability is sailing very strong and we would welcome any persons wanting to help out in all fields. We have a great crew. So come and join us and discover something new and meaningful. For those who wonder - the blue metal stand on D finger is our new base for our new hoist.


SOCIAL COMMITTEE Article by Judy Bridgewater The Social Committee has been very active during the past few months arranging and hosting events within the Club. Members who have visited the Club may have noticed all the flyers and signs promoting upcoming events. Our Functions have seen mixed results with some receiving a great response and others seriously lacking in support. The Sausage Sizzle is going along grandly on Saturday at lunchtime between 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm. The Club Bar is also open on Sausage Sizzle afternoons from 12:00 noon. This hour or so is an enjoyable time for members to take time out from the weekend grind to enjoy a casual lunch and join in great conversation with others in attendance. If you are interested in volunteering to put your name on a roster to cook one Saturday please contact the office as we are always looking for extra helpers. Profits from the Sausage Sizzle on Sail Training Saturdays support our junior sailors.

Photo: Easter Party

It was especially pleasing to see so many members and visitors at the Club enjoying the Easter Party on the evening prior to the B2G start on Good Friday. There really was a party atmosphere present. More than ever it was great to see so many members and visitors at the Club on Mother’s Day. What better way to show how grateful you are and thank that special person in your life – Mum - than to enjoy a lunch and music afternoon to help show how much you love her. The entire Club was truly pumping during Rough Red’s performance and words can not convey how grateful we all are for the band to include our venue on their calendar thus allowing us all to enjoy their music and the jovial party mood created.

Photo: Members and Brisbane to Gladestone crew during the evening before the race.

All events were very enjoyable and special in their own way and I am sure all who attended would agree. If you have not had the opportunity to attend any of the staged events don’t worry as more are planned. Check out the new calendar in the centre of this edition of Cruisin’ News. If you wish to be kept up to date with all upcoming events, reminders are emailed via the ‘Club Cleats’ and unless you have already done so, provide the office with your email address to ensure you don’t miss out on what’s happening. As always, we welcome feedback on specific events and any offers of assistance whether as a one off or as a permanent member of the Social Committee.
