Finally in Florida *Updated*

Published by under Racing,World's

Well after the plane breaking down and getting delayed for 27 hours only to have a Virgin flight block the runway up for another few hours I’m finally here.

The boats got stuck in customs for a day and instead of a flatbed car lorry to onload all we got was a covered truck with a tailgate lift.

with some inginuity, brute strenght and plenty of ignorance all boats are on the deck and in one piece, all rigged up just having a bite to eat and then off for some training and hopefully be ready for the US Nationals starting tomorrow.

Awful weather here, 28 degrees and blowing 18-20knots from the West every afternoon.

RNLI at Cadet night this Thursday 7pm – don’t miss it!

Published by under Bilge

Hi all,

Just a reminder, on Thursday April 19th, Graham Slack and one of his colleagues from the Southend Lifeboat Station have kindly agreed to give a presentation about the service the RNLI provide in Southend, including some of the more interesting services they have carried out!

This should be very entertaining for Cadets and their parents, all are welcome, so I hope as many of you as possible can attend.

The presentation will start at 7pm in the Commodores bar.

PLEASE ALSO BRING SOME CHANGE FOR THE RNLI COLLECTION BOX!
