As you may know Aquarius owns three Lasers but only one of them has ever had a name.
'Peanuts' is has now been joined by 'Bob' named after Bob Sumner, and 'Mac' named
after Mac Mackenzie the founder and first President of AQSC.
Another new Laser sail has also been purchased, so we now have two new standard size
Laser sails plus a Laser redial rig. The purchase of a new weather cover has also
been agreed for the club Graduate. Our four club’s Picos were overhauled prior to
the recent youth sailing training programme so are also in good order.
The Topper is still in use although beginning to show its age a little.

A Pat On The Back For Janet
Well done Janet Edwards for raising £955, which includes a donation from Aquarius,
for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre (UK) in memory of Bob Sumner, who was our
Bosun for many years. Janet hopes to make this £1000 with the help of a planned coffee
One of our club Lasers has been named "Bob" in honour of his memory. Another club
Laser has been being named "Mac" in memory of R.F.(Mac) McCoy who was a founder member,
Commodore and President of Aquarius until his retirement in 1983. George and I still
miss them both and remember them with great affection.
