Looking forward to it. Must get the prayer mat out to the gods of the sunshine and do as many hail Mary's as I can muster 😀

As the first International Member of WMBC.
I guess I will have to say that, I'll be attending in spirit!
As I'm across the pond, but would love to be there so!
I would like for all the Members of WMBC to have a lot of fun.
Please post pics!

Ed.👍

Thank you for the kind thoughts Ed. I'm sure there will be plenty of pictures and hopefully a movie.

Hopefully my old 34" fireboat. And my 60" launch CAROLINE. both are over 50 years old. And possibly still watertight. See them in my harbour. Caroline last sailed 1992 and fireboat 2010.
Thanks Colin.

Brilliant! The wonders of modern comms!!!
In about an hour a guy in Connecticut USA can tell a guy in Leicester UK where to find a cuppa even thought he ain't never been there!! 👍👍👍
The sort of thing that makes my 45 years spent in design and development of comms system seem even more worthwhile. Luv it! 😎

I am so sorry Ed. It was in no way meant to be a criticism. I just wanted to give Matthew as much information as possible.

I'm really happy people have an interest in the club.

Thanks, RNinMunich

I'm glad that my name brings back memories!
Figtree was my nickname in the Navy, So I have adopted the name Figtree because it reminds me of my Navy days...

Hi Ed, my nickname at work was 'The Old Sea Dog' cos I was the last founder member and pioneer of our Naval Comms Group. So my dear ol' Mum found me an appropriate baseball cap with exactly that on it! 😎

Yep, not very likely! Special print like on T shirts perhaps??
Mum found my cap in a boat chandlers in the Eastbourne Marina in UK.
Sooo - off to bed now (up the apples and pears to Bedfordshire!) as it's now 2 a.m. here in Munich. Done my share of Dog Watches!!! 😉
Cheers Doug 😎

I had a real good time and sailed my dads old boat for the first time, which was its first trip on water for 25 years. Thanks to the WMBC Members for making me feel welcome and for the advice, will now send in my membership as they are a great bunch with no pretensions. Thanks Colin.

Colin thankyou so very much for your most kind words. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to catch up with you today it was a little manic.
But what a fabulous display. I will pass on your kind words to the membership.
