It can hardly be a traditional Christmas Party, although I will not mind if people turn up with fancy hats and tell us funny stories or interesting things that happened to them during our abbreviated sailing season. We might also use this meeting to…

Mytchett, Camberley, Surrey GU16 6DD United Kingdom
+ Google Map

This face-to-face event is now cancelled due to COVID restrictions.       Writing this update at the end of the September it seems quite likely that we will have to cancel this meeting and also revise our arrangements for our AGM which we had planed to follow on from this meeting. However, if the virus situation does improve by the end of 2019 allowing us to follow our original plan then this meeting will be held at a new…

AYRS Zoom Meeting – A Small Catamaran and I-Wood

10 April @ 19:30 - 22:00

A last minute change of plan for the AYRS April Zoom meeting - we now have two members who would like to give short presentations: Giuseppe Gigliobianco will tell us about a small catamaran he built and Chris Scott about 'I-Wood' so I sugest we make these the main subject for this meeting rather than a discussion about the AC75 which was previously announced on this website. I-Wood is Chris's concept for a way to use timber that makes best…
