The Association has two new members to welcome: David Oakley, the new owner of #033 Shalom and Eric Witheridge, the new owner of #098 Darteign.
#033 Shalom was on the 'last information list' as Eudocimus, and David reports that he picked her up in Holland in early May and eventually reached Plymouth by the end of June (via Ouistreham, Cherbourg and Poole). There will be adjustments to be made over the winter in preparation for an some extended cruising next year.
#098 Darteign is currently cruising around Wales, Scotland and Ireland for 3 months, and Eric will be basing her in Cardiff.
Congratulations to both of you, we look forward to hearing about your extended delivery trips in due course.......
The Hon. Secretary and Hon. Treasurer are hoping to attend the Southampton Boat Show on Thursday 20th September. If you are there then please call/text Michael on 07768 037965 to arrange to meet up.
Seal Morning has returned from her travels, and is back on the North coast of Ireland for the winter; we had an interesting summer cruise which visited Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. Over a thousand miles of cruising were completed during July and August, with many adventures and encounters en-route. There have been some photographs posted on the Association Facebook page, and I'm hoping that more will be forthcoming from other members in due course.
Liberty Jane is currently heading south in the Sound of Jura, Seal Morning is heading down the North Channel later, anyone else got any plans or reports of cruising yet?
The Association extends a warm welcome to Chris and Richard Jacobson, the new owners of Barquito #39. Barquito is presently ashore in Northumberland, but Chris and Richard are hoping for a launch this summer before cruising in Europe.
