Dear Sailors and Friends, For your Diary New Event this Sunday – Pursuit Race Come down early and enjoy a Champagne Breakfast (spoil your wives) Rochelle will be serving a delicious breakfast including a glass of Champagne from 09h00. Warm Toasty Croissant topped with your choice of: Smoked Salmon, Creamy Scrambled Egg and Chives Bacon and Scrambled Egg with Rocket Grilled Mushrooms, Tomato and Scrambled Eggs Sunday Racing, the Commodore has offered a Magnum of High Constantia Champagne to the winner of the pursuit race to be sailed from 11h00 on Sunday; separate courses for Senior & Junior Classes.     Alfred Rowing Club Talk evening and supper set for Friday 13th February Liz Day, a Club member, is set to give us a fascinating talk on the Vlei – origins, history, water quality, algal blooms, the effects of a stray Zeekoe on the nerves of rowers, etc – on Friday, 13 February. At a cost of R50 per person I reckon that is fantastic value!  I hope we will be able to meet some of our sailing colleagues to boot – as  it applies to them as much as us!  Rochelle is providing dinner for another R50 per person, and the bar will be open from 5.30pm.  A good night is guaranteed!
