Commodore calling…. I hope that you all had a lovely and festive Christmas Day and that today, Boxing Day, hasn’t been too strenuous. Ruth and I, along with Steve and Catherine from NB Aalin, cruised up to Whiteley Green on Christmas Eve. Although it has been awfully wet and Whiteley Green and the towpaths are extremely muddy, it has been wonderful to get out on NB Sunbeam and enjoy her – as they say, use it or lose it.
The plan for the New Year’s Day Cruise is for all boats to set off at 12.00 sharp. We will then proceed to Higher Poynton, along the way wishing a Happy New Year to all we meet. Upon our return there will be soup, sandwiches, hot drinks etc available in the Clubhouse and the bar will also be open.
All members, family and friends are more than welcome to come along to the clubhouse from 1.30pm onwards, whether taking part in the cruise or not. For those members who are no longer boating but would enjoy a couple of hours on the adorable Macclesfield canal, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made for you to join one of the boats.
If the weather is not suitable for cruising, the Clubhouse will still be open at 1.30pm for good company and refreshments.
