Eastern region - August Bank Hoilday

In preparation for the annual meet at Beccles over August Bank Hoilday, 10 berths have been provisionally reserved for us with the harbour master for Saturday and Sunday nights.  Let me know soonest if you are coming.  Also, as the evening cruise to Oulton Broad for the fireworks was a real success, I will also book berths for as many who want them for the Monday night - again let me know soon.

Early season events

The first two events of the 2009 season were both well attended by local members, although it has to be said that the same boats were represented with only a couple of new crews from the usual ones.  Where are you all?

In mid April 9 boats met up at Beccles for an overnight stay in the yacht harbour and a fitting out dinner at the excellent Waveney House Hotel a few minutes walk away. Despite organising the whole event, Maureen and I were unable to attend due to her having an urgent eye operation a few days before, but all 18 members who did go had an enjoyable social evening and meal. So we were not left out, we "took wine" over the telephone !

East region early season dinner - fitting out supper

Maureen and I have been to the proposed venue - the Waveney House Hotel, Beccles - and made a provisional booking for Saturday 18th April.  The hotel is on the river side about ten minutes walk from the yacht station, Broom cruisers (except ex hire craft) cannot reach it by water!!  Low water at Beccles is around midday, so access under the road bridge will not be a problem.

 A private area of the restaurant will be partitioned off for us and we have a varied selection of dishes to choose from, including vegetarian options. Price is £20 per head for two courses or £25 for three, coffee a couple of pounds extra. The hotel has a good range of wines. 

Moorings will be reserved at the yacht station.

If you would like to attend this first event of 2009 - and the first pre-season dinner for ther east region (you can by car as well) please call or e-mail me soonest.  A £10 deposit per couple will be required, menus will be sent to all participants well in advance as pre-ordering is necessary for this dinner.

Open to all east region BOC members and any visiting from other regions.  Numbers will be restricted, so book early!
