Catching up with Jess, Kim and Anthony prior to Scotland. Lets hope all our Cork week experience sees us right for the social side of Scotland.
Moving onto the next few weeks.
There will be racing this Wed for all interested. The club will not be ready to take us back on wed but will be ready for Sat. Hopefully all those available can make it for racing this week and can help with moving the boats back to the Club on Sat….. For those not traveling to Scotland please talk among yourselves and organize the Chicken!!
Less than two weeks away !!!
