Do not know yet whether there will be a night sail on Saturday night, the museum boss is keen on it but it depends on whether they can get their staff to stay on, they do not trust us anymore!!!!!

We did nothing at all, take no notice of Yewgarth.  It is just that the management changed and they have different ideas.

I have a question if we put on a night sail again how many would be interested the museum asked why we didn't do it last year my reply was they didn't have any staff on to keep the blooming place unlocked hence no night sail so if I can get the place open would you attend is it worth my effort
