I hope that you had a good Christmas and that you managed to avoid the ill effects of the recent extraordinary weather that we have had.
The committee will be meeting in the next few weeks to finalise this year's events schedule. We plan to include the River Wey, the London Ring, and the usual trips up and down the river. In addition, I hope to arrange a visit to the Port of London's Vessel Traffic Services Centre (London VTS).
I am also keen to attract some new members this year and hope increase the club's presence on social media and update the website.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy New Year and hope that it brings us many good times together.
