The Strangers are descending on Pyefleet this weekend, and they’ve put out a pretty wide-ranging invitation: just show up in something interesting – it doesn’t have to be a Strange boat – from HW (around 12.30) on Friday.
I’m hoping to be there, winds and tides permitting (and the weather does look good!). From experience, I can say the boats will be wonderful (including the splendid cutter Hardy), the organisation will be helpful and friendly, there will be a little sailing to do if you want to, and there will be a bring-and-share supper.
I gather there is to be an organised outing to look at the restored smack Pioneer.
You don’t have to be an ASA member to join them – but they do ask that you let them know you’re coming using the contact link on this ASA weblog post.
