Many thanks to all those attended and made it a wonderful evening. We had almost 140 revelers, including some members of the Queen's Sailing team. As usual, the food & service were fantastic! Kudos to Greg, chef Neil and all the staff. There was much merriment and some embarrassment (i.e. from some of the special awards "winners"). Thanks to Peter K for once again acquiring the glassware & flags and managing their flow to the winners. Thanks to members of the Sailing Committee (Robin Wynne-Edwards, John Vines, Robert Weguelin, Steve Harrison, Ross Cameron) for helping with presenting duties and Mary Wilson who took some great photos. The photos have been uploaded to KYC's flickr site, as have the slide show images.

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve or add to our racing, regattas or other sailing programs at KYC please have a chat with any member of the Sailing Committee. We plan to have some evening/weekend events during the winter that, hopefully, will be of interest to racers/sailors. Until we hit the water next year...
