Annual General Meeting 2019

The 2019 AGM went ahead as planned. On a beautiful sunny day and in the extremely comfortable headquarters of the Cruising Association, the members enjoyed three interesting and very different presentations during the morning session, followed by a splendid lunch.The business session then proceeded smoothly. A full account will be included in the Spring Newsletter.

The Ian Anderson Trophy was belatedly awarded to Derek and Trish Ovenden for their outstanding refurbishment of Lady Louise (ex Kellogs}.

The Committee wish to thank all those who came to Limehouse., especially those from far afield.
