    Saturday December 22 Hollyburn Sailing Club will hold its annual Solstice Flotilla and Potluck Party. They have opened it up to SKABC Members again this year. Details are below.

    The first part applies to those people who wish to get on to the water at 4:30pm, and the second part (starting at 7:30pm) is open to anyone interested in a pre-Christmas social with Potluck food and live music. Former Commodore Mike Cairns will be playing popular sing-along carols, followed by our own Hollyburn Trio of Neil Carroll, Jennifer Parkinson-Dow, and Steve Britten.

    Solstice Flotilla and Festival of Light and Christmas Potluck Party – Saturday December 22nd.

    Action Plan (weather permitting):

    – Meet at the Club between 3.30 and 4 pm; bring your share for the potluck. BYOB, have some time to decorate boats.

    Maybe it’s just me but at least one of the two RSVP emails didn’t work, namely


    Hope the other email works, although the spelling looks unusual since the spelling of name and email address don’t seem to match:

    I hope somebody cancels the on the water part of this asap. I really wanted to do this because last year I missed it but the marine forecast is for 20-30 northerly outflow winds. The wind will die down as it changes direction from the south and if it were to look good, maybe you could poke your noses out for an hour on a morning or afternoon paddle but not dusk to after dark.
