As we lurch into Winter this weekend what better than to think about FOWEY 6 and to put the dates in your Diary and arrange Accomodation. Warm Breezes, Good Company and a cool Beer or two , and oh yes some excellent Sailing ! About 6 months ago... Deep discussions with potetial Sponsors and Supporters are underway. The Programme is already outlined and will soon be firmed up. Apparel by popular demand [mainly from the Girls] will be available early in the New Year. Tasteful as ever yet distinctive !
Fowey NOR,Sailing Programme and Social Programme and S.I.s will be published later this month. New Sailing Format and the addition of the "BROWN WILLY Race"....originally my idea but the Race name is nothing to do with me ! Incredibly Fowey 6 is only a little over 4 months away. Fowey is different...Excellent Sailing and Racing,good Social Programme all in beautiful settings and a Holiday added on... Fowey is great for all the Family. Come on down and get Salty ! If you are joining us I have to remind you to book your accomodation as soon as you can. If you need any help then please or advice get in touch.
Apparel samples[Hoodys,Sweatshirts,Polo Shirts] are being approved this week so will be soon be available...and yes they are very tasteful !
Ladies Hoody,s Colours by demand will be PURPLE or BRIGHT ROYAL BLUE. Richard - FUSCHIA for Sam not a problem.... Samples ready this Friday.... Polo,s,Hoody,s and Sweats available to Order from end of January. Delivery in mid Feb.
Event Tee,s included in Event Entry Fee... Extras for Wives,Partners and Floosies at a very modest charge. Kids[our most important FOWEY group] Tee,s are free. Tee,s dispensed on Fab Friday.
Fowey Entries so far stand at 14 Boats ... and most have paid ! Have said it so many times before but the Fowey Event is unique with hopefully something for everyone. Racing will be first class as always, and challenging at times, but the fun and socials are equally important. We try to look after everyone...the not too confident, the kids and our spectators[Hecklers United on the Commmittee Boat !] Venue and Hosts are fantastic. Good Time ?....Guaranteed Accomodation and Camping Spaces still available. For those who do not want to stay the whole week ...the main event can be won over two days[ although you might miss some of the Fun] Rocking at the Galleon on Fab Friday,Entertainment [Tosh] at the Gallants on Saturday Night,Reception at the RFYC and The Straight Party at Revenge Court on Monday Night... ...You might need a Holiday after that lot !
FINAL countdown to Fowey.... 4 weeks to go and its Flip Flop time.... As always we would love Fowey First-Timers to join us...the Initiation Ceremony isnt that bad ! Best to bring your Moth of course but over the years many have called in and joined the fun. Spectators and Families are more than welcome. Easy to get to...head for Bristol and then due South West-ish and hang a left at Bodmin !
Now only a little over 3 weeks to go.... Dont forget the upcoming CAM S.C. Open next weekend then its all about getting ready to yomp down to Fowey. So grease your bearings,double check your tie-downs and head West! Advance Party will be there on the Thursday and readied for Fab Friday.
FOWEY beckons.... Salty experience par excellence fuelled by Pasties and Cider ..What could be better. Everything starts on Fab Friday ....Customary Bonding and Group Hugs! Get the Boats on the Library Lawn,dump the Trailers,check in to your Cottage..and meet at the Gallants then on to the Galleon later. Looks like about 14 Boats and hopefully some last minute Spectators checking proceedings out for the first time. Most importantly the Kids are ready ...Crabs,Find the Fly,Treasure Hunt,Ice Creams etc. Only downside is there are about 6 miles of Road Works on the A30 just before Bodmin,and end when you turn off for Lostwithiel/Fowey. Its single lane so it does keep moving. Be careful on the narrow road leading into Fowey and DON,T drive thro Fowey with your Trailer,drop down into the Caffa Mill Car Park. Call if you need any help ....
