We need to talk about logistics for Lowestoft

there are two clashes - luckily the Sonata event doesn't clash at all!. However the OGA event clashes with the Mirror Nationals and we will be away for that. probably a god thing - the OGA is all the way up at marconi's, always has no wind and few smacks have done it lately. So we won't do that - and anyway the next weekend is Lowestoft so it was all a bit crowded in the calendar around then.

The second clash is that having persuaded the Mirror class and BSC to hold their Eastern Areas at BSC, it now clashes with the dredging. I'm honour bound to do that event with little Elodie. That really only affects Stephen so the proposal is that the dredging goes ahead with everyone else. OK?

Pin Mill is always announced late - and then changed!

Whitstable's date is wandering around a bit but current date is on the Saturday immediately before Pyefleet Week, so we won't do that as it stands.

Don't think we can do Heybridge and B'sea regatta - so we'll stay home for whatever B'sea regatta brings - there was talk of a race involving the creek (!).
