THE sailing season for the Weymouth and Portland Cruising Association always starts with the Fitting Out Supper which, this year, was held at the Oasis café.

Organised by social secretary, Jacquie Crawley, members sat down to an excellent three course meal followed by Ernie Rowe’s entertaining and amusing talk.

John Atkinson then presented trophies to Alan Mayell and Alun and Liz Harfoot.

The first cruise is on the horizon when assistant cruising officer, Chris Reid, will lead a trip to Yarmouth.

For the less experienced, he will be holding a passage planning evening on Tuesday, April 23 to ensure new to sailing members are confident to take part.
