Writer Jonathan Gornall has attempted to row across the Atlantic twice. On the second attempt he nearly drowned but his relationship with the sea has continued. Today he spends his time at Pin Mill in Suffolkwhere he has just built a small sailing boat for his daughter and he hopes the boat will teach her to love the sea too. Helen Mark meets him and the boat building community who live beside the River Orwell to discover the great history of sailing which remains at the heart of Pin Mill today.
Do you fancy a weekend cruise up the coast in company with other PMSC Members and a night in the beautiful river Deben?
Whether you are a Deben veteran or a first timer ‘over the bar’, it is a short but very satisfying cruise, with beautiful scenery, excellent scope for birdwatching, and the option of a meal on Saturday night at the picturesque Ramsholt Arms pub.
Not got a boat? Time then to chat up friends who have and get them to invite you aboard!
Why not sail for the Hapenny Cup on Sunday 26th August, in memory of the film. This is a time trial race with a difference. You predict how long you will take. The skipper closest to their prediction wins the fabulous Hapenny Cup tankard and there will be a BBQ at the club afterwards. The course starts and finishes at the PMSC start line, and is via Cork Sands yacht beacon.

The Lucky Dip got as far as £400 before it was won.
Friday nights had brought a build up of excitement but also some speculation as to how far it should go. This was discussed at the June General Committee meeting and the decision was made that it should be capped at £500 which is a good sum of money to win. The draw will therefore continue each week until that £500 is won. However, the principle of a weekly contribution to the prize from the bar has to be maintained. Therefore, a second draw (in waiting) will receive the weekly bar contribution and when the £500 is won, the second draw will come into play at whatever figure it has then reached.
Good luck! and don't forget that you have to be in the Club on a Friday night at 9pm in order to have a chance to win.
