77 Members, ex-Members, and Guests enjoyed the celebrations at the Compleat Angler in Marlow on 19th March.  As you can see, the decorations, hospitality, and food were enjoyed in a very convivial atmosphere in the Regents Suite at the Hotel.  The staff and food were excellent, and frankly.....everyone had a great time !!!

Awards were given as follows:

  • Silver Jubilee Cup, for sailing beyond our normal horizons was awarded to Paul Farrell for sailing back from the Azores, and to Diana Farrell for sailing to Beaulieu.
  • Ruby cup, for encouraging others in sailing, was awarded to Timandra Slade for her work with disabled children at the Colne Valley Sailing School.
  • The Peter Batterley Trophy was won by Gordon Sims for his story about the renovation of his moto cruiser, Chimere.

Well done, to all of them.

We were partitcularly delighted to have with us Alf Sampeys and Roland Ebbetts, who were part of the visionary group that founded GXSA, in 1965!
