On another note, we had our St. Mary's Sailing Club AGM last night and approved our invitational regatta. Event info is attached. We would like to provide a special invitation to our Newell Sailing Club friends to come and join us at this event on June 14-15. We would also like to invite the North American Seaspray fleet to try out our sailing venue that weekend. Could you please distribute further to both the Seaspray group and NSC?
