Planning Douglas for the tt leaving on the Friday 31st may sail back on Monday or tuesday. It’ll be a boys only trip. 1st race is on the Saturday.

Would anyone be interested in the Conwy river festival.

Hi Will, Might well join you, leaving 31st on Reverie and plan same duration. As far as Conwy river festival, not heard of it, but will have a look and let you know. Cheers, Howard
