Even if the ‘Beast from the East’ is keeping you cool, your thoughts, like mine, might be turning towards those looked-forward to warm summer days on board.  Why not start the season now by writing an article for your Club Magazine, Sweeping Statements?  The next issue will be out in the Spring, and now is the time to get your article written and sent to the editor before the cut-off date of 31st March.

These should be of the highest resolution possible and include a photo of yourself and your boat, if you can. An article of 2-3 pages of A4 would be about the right length but don’t worry too much as I can help with editing and any other queries or concerns you may have. So, why not let us know of the wonderful cruise you’ve enjoyed in the past, or are planning for the future. Or maybe you’ve just changed boats, installed a major modification or new piece of kit or found the perfect mooring.  

It’s your magazine, and it’s your chance to tell the rest of the Club about your boating life. We’re all looking forward to hearing from you and may even learn from your experiences, or be encouraged to try that great cruising area too. Forget the Beast - get writing!
