Due to mid June’s unpleasant weather, i.e. rain and high winds, this event was cancelled.
This years MS cruise was held on the evening of 15 June. The plan was to leave Aquarius
at 6.00-6.30pm and sail and/or motor cruise up to ‘The Weir Hotel’ at Walton for
drinks and supper. Lyn and I opted to drive up and had been enjoying a pint (or two)
sitting in the bar for a while when Nigel and Frank walked in closely followed by
Stuart, Rodger, Rebecca, Aiko, and Graham. Nigel and Frank had sailed up on Lasers
the rest had been aboard Stuarts cruiser ‘Cavatina’. The Steak and Guinness and Chicken
and Mushroom pies took a hammering along with some good looking fish and several
different types of falling down water. Finally Stuart decided he didn’t want to get
caught by the locks closing so, along with his crew, departed to move the cruiser
downstream. I understand the trip back was uneventful. Lyn and I had a final coffee
and wended our way home.
