Cost £5 for wine tasting and £5 for BBQ
This year we have Majestic, which owns Naked Wines, to take us through a selection of wines from across the globe. We start with the BBQ at 7pm, followed by the presentation and tasting, with the opportunity to ask questions.
In previous years, members have wanted to buy some wines on the night, so we are asking Majestic to bring some supplies for sale.
The Belgian Finance Office has confirmed to the Cruising Association (CA) that there will now be no fines or penalties for UK vessels visiting Belgium which have UK marine red diesel in their tanks.
This will hopefully attract visitors back to the country after many sailors stayed away last year.
However, 100% fuel duty must still be paid on all red diesel which is purchased before a trip to Belgium. The full stipulations are contained in the note from the CA’s Regulations and Technical Services Group.
Hopefully the Belgium customs officials have been told...
The club is pleased to announce that we now have some wonderful PMSC mugs for sale, at the excellent price of just £6.00 each.
They are available for purchase from the clubhouse, so just pop in during opening hours.
