Always nice to welcome our good friends from Luton.  A lovely day indeed.  A total of 540 was raised for the RNLI.
The hire fleet was in continuous use in the boomed-off corner.  The tombola sold out.  Plus the RNLI collection box and knitted toy sales.  Trophies given for best boat, best BPMBC boat, and best novelty boat.
The lake was a busy seaway all day.  Gazebo's and ship laden tables stretched right along the lake.
Thank you to all our friends from far afield for making the day special.

Hi all, I had a very pleasant day, sailed my Schooner in a patchy but good wind.  I was kindly invited to join in with the Luton club, thanks Klunk most appreciated.
Nice meeting up again with boaters, I enjoyed my lunch unlike the bony gentleman rowing round.
Thanks to the organisers,
Roy
