Cheats Christmas Lunch
15 December

This will be organised by Nigel Knowles and Rodger Wheeler. These lunches have proved very popular in the past so early booking is advised. Watch out for advertising via flyers, email and our website.

Sunbury Regatta Fireworks

This event took place on a beautiful clear night on the 10th August. The wind was light and the temperature was “mild” in Weather Bureau parlance so a light jacket was sufficient for comfort.

To start there was a BBQ at AQSC and then the Patrol boat, full of members, left at 8:15pm.

The river events opened with a sail past by cruisers belonging to members of Middle Thames Yacht Club but it was not without Aquarius participation. Several vessels decked with lights, pictures, music and fancy dressed crews passed “Habari” the anchor boat belonging to Di and Phil Howley. Alan and Gail Mackintosh decked their boat out as Chez Flintstone and dressed the part as well whilst Stuart Shafer attempted to record the event on film.

Aquarius fielded the Patrol Boat with a motley crew of 10 whilst Graham undertook the task of rowing Trudi up river.
