Wednesday Evenings at AQSC

Fancy a midweek drink with friends in convivial surroundings but don't like going to pubs ? Sorted, come down to Aquarius. The bar opens at 8:00pm and the view is second to none. You can brush up on your game of darts, have a game of cards, re-discover to joys of table tennis or play spot the mink ! (No, just joking !) Seriously though, it's your club so why restrict yourself to only visiting it at weekends. Come down on Wednesday nights and rediscover a pool of tranquillity in the middle of the working week. God ! that's almost poetic, and of course has nothing to do with the fact that I have regular bar duty on a Wednesday night and would desperately like someone to talk too !

Another SigneT to a good home

ST370, one up from Over Easy, left its temporary home in the AQSC Pipe Yard on 15 April and headed north for restoration and a new home at Paxton Lakes SC at St.Neots. Chris Ritchie, the new owner, said he was looking forward to the task of putting ST370 back into full sailing order. His three young children were equally enthusiastic about sailing the dinghy, having seen the other SigneT's, which regularly sail at Little Paxton. It's true what they say. "Old SigneT's never die, if their lucky, they get refurbished, recycled and re-loved". I've never seen that happen with a lump of fibre glass!
