Rally organisers Beverly and Martin Briggs (on board Dacelo and accompanied by Eddie McDonald) and Rosemary and David Lyth (on board Balayette) cruised to Poole on Wednesday 13th, taking full advantage of flat calm, sunny conditions. On Friday 15th they were joined by Elizabeth and Alan Fuller (on board Blue Blood), Laurie and Anton Bates (on board Slipaway) and Sarah and Steve Dean, (on board More Magic and accompanied by Georgina McMasters); the latter 2 boats having to negotiate ‘lumpy’, windy conditions en route to Poole. The 5 Broom boats looked mightily impressive, all moored on a dedicated pontoon. Special thanks to Alan Fuller for arranging moorings in such a prime position in the marina.
As Poole Quay Boat Haven is located in the heart of the town, everyone was able to wander along the quayside and/or stroll around the shops in the afternoon.
In the evening, with the sun shining brightly, the group gathered for pre-dinner drinks and nibbles on the pontoon prior to the short walk to Da Vinci restaurant where everyone enjoyed delicious food in a lively, friendly atmosphere.

The second Brundall boat show took place in excellent weather and everyone was pleased with the attendance despite a wedding. The club had a space just outside the NYA office and Linda Varney and I talked to both existing and prospective members. Three new ones signed up on the day and we expect others to do so soon. Other events over the weekend included a Broom Boats hog roast and a club BBQ on the island.
