Won't be able to do the 4th (Wedding Anniversary - I can get away with many things but this ....!!) but if you go for the 19th count me in.

A mere 484 males who play golf between Woking & Guildford would need to come to a sticky end before they made me the captain. And even then, some of the Lady Members with a little facial growth on their top lip would put themselves up for surgery before that dubious honour passed down to me.

Good job I only play there 4 times per year. Makes it excruciatingly expensive at about 12 per hole, but let's not go there....

Treasure Hunt

I am thinking about tagging on, the only problem is that currently I only have a 3.6 Avon Sea Sport with a 40 Mariner, would this be too small, obviously subject to weather.

Thanks for all the interest shown in this event so far. More details will be posted very soon but basically we are aiming to start at Calshot around 10am and finish at The Folly Inn (River Medina) around 4.30pm with a lunch stop in Yarmouth.

MeMe, thanks for your generous offer - I will PM you. If there are any other people out there who would be willing to donate a prize please let me know.

Please keep watching this thread for updates.

Looking forward to seeing lots of you on the 19th.

P.S. Although the emphasis is on family fun, you are allowed to enter as an 'adults only' boat! So there's no reason for any of you not to enter just cos you can't round up a kid or two!!

shiver me timbers you dog-eared bugswallowers, this be an excitin' time for all you dizzy-eyed pignurdlers. I ere you be settin' your sails for thee isle of wighty blighty on the morn of the 19th day of the 9th month of this ere yere. I'd be a local yocal to these ere parts and would be glad to welcome yee all onto me isle with a bang of me cannon, a squark of me parrot and a clank of me olde tankard full of me finest home brew.

As all the weather-beaten miscreants who invaded on the 8th day of thee 8th month (when the cloud was thick, the air was dank and the wind was a blowin') in a brave sea-doggin' attempt to circumnavigate the viscious isle will tell yee ol, me local drinking hole yee be the olde King's Head in the port of Yarmouth. Ere you'll find the biggest bunch of misfits and colly bogglers you ever be a settin' eyes upon. Me and me parrot would be 'appy to book you all in for lunch and may even drag our scurvey drunken asses out of our lice ridden hammocks and come and join you.

Then after we had all drunken the bar dry and stuffed our gullets with the finest steak known to man and if my sea hardy vessel were not so dog swogglingly small, i'd be mounting me plank off thee starboard quarter for all you molly-coddled jugswiggers to be a walkin' off into the ocean and down to Davey Jones's Locker....oh aaaarrrrr jim bob me laddy.

So in English, I'd be happy to book you in to a pub in yarmouth for lunch if you wish (although booking probably wouldn't be necessary) and may come and join you...What say thee, thou gnarling, dizzy-eyed pantaloon pullers!

Cheers

Tim (Pirate Dick the Periwinkle...see below!)
