I can't find when the website first went live.  The earliest I have found is the AQSC Regatta on 4 June 99. And I uploaded web pages on 25 May 99.

There was nothing in the Spring 1999 newsletter published March 1999 and it was announced in the Summer newsletter published 9 July 1999; so between April to June 1999 seems likely.

I used my free UkGateway web space to create

It is still hosted there although ownership changed to Tiscali and now TalkTalk provide the excellent service. Our domain was registered on 16Aug02.

In those days web access speed was very different; I had recently upgraded my 9.6 kbs modem to the latest 56kbp modem at a cost of £180; 40 times slower than the slowest you are likely to get today.

I hope you find the website useful for finding current and historical information like newsletters and race results.
