This is the Harbour Masters notice to mariners.

Prety general but maybe Scott can post a better itinerary.

Re: 18 & 19th August

We have a family engagement on Sat afternoon. It is over in Bexhill and we were supposed to stay the night but I have said i drive back so I dont miss Sunday.

I may also be out for a short time on Sat morning ............. it all depends on what happens and how things go with the boss letting me out to play

Lunch at the AV sounds good Graham
