We have decided to postpone the Historical Association meeting this Tuesday 14 March. Among other things in the build up to the Sail GP regatta 19-20 March, itself an historic event, there is a dinner that evening that clashes with our meeting. Pauline Barnett will therefore now speak at our May meeting and we encourage members to come to the dinner at the Charteris Bay Yacht Club on Tuesday 6-9 pm when the yacht club is hosting 2 members of the Emirates Britain Sail GP team.

There will be a presentation, a fundraising dinner (catered by Sandy from Orton Bradley Cafe) and an auction – 6.00 – 9.00 pm.

We would love for you to join us for the evening – it should be a good night and will be great food. Tickets are limited so please book direct with the club administrator Rebecca Baynes on 021 333 901. Tickets for the evening are $75.00 and all in the community (young and old) are welcome.

Hannah Mills and Neil Hunter from Emirates Britain Sail GP team both present for approximately 20 minutes each during the evening and have a Q & A session.
