VICTORIA SPONGE BAKE-OFF IN AID OF THE EAST ANGLIAN AIR AMBULANCE
Bank Holiday Monday, 28th May from 12 noon Members and non-members are invited to forget their calorie counting and bake their favourite Victoria Sponge for our annual Bake-Off competition.
The Belgian Finance Office has confirmed to the Cruising Association (CA) that there will now be no fines or penalties for UK vessels visiting Belgium which have UK marine red diesel in their tanks.
This will hopefully attract visitors back to the country after many sailors stayed away last year.
However, 100% fuel duty must still be paid on all red diesel which is purchased before a trip to Belgium. The full stipulations are contained in the note from the CA’s Regulations and Technical Services Group.
Hopefully the Belgium customs officials have been told...
The club is pleased to announce that we now have some wonderful PMSC mugs for sale, at the excellent price of just £6.00 each.
They are available for purchase from the clubhouse, so just pop in during opening hours.
