Mid Summer Madness ! Twilight Cruise 16 July
Richard Cannon

Conditions were much better this year for the evening cruise up to the Magpie, Sunbury, for dinner; the weather was fine.

Also up to 30 minutes before leaving  the boats were having a very good sail but as 18:30 approached the wind died for the 5 boats sailing; although they managed to get half way before needing a tow by the patrol boats.

The cruisers of Don Barnet and Peter Clayton were very useful for taking members up in comfort. There was a very good turnout of around 21 members.

Although at lunch time Richard Cannon had informed the Magpie we were coming there was a serious shortage of food.; many dishes had sold out and there was no salad for the the many dishes that required it. The chef was feeling under a lot of stress and they got more salad from the local Budgens store.

It was a very enjoyable event. Peter said that the Phoenix, another nearby pub, had improved greatly and we will try that next time.
