Happy New Year

Happy New Year!!  Weren't the fireworks great!  But what a pain it was to get home etc

DBSC is here to help you with your new years fitness resolutions (at least for a week).  We have 2 days with decent Noreasters forecast.  Great opportunity to work off: the Xmas ham, the turkey, the pudding, seconds on the ham, that extra little bit of turkey that you didn't want to go to waste, the "oh you're not eating the pudding? I'll help you out", those "it would be rude no to have one more beer" beers, and so on.

Thursday 1 January Twilightish.    Informal Sailing for those with both a leave pass and a manageable hangover. 4pm splash
