XYOA Plans for 2018

With this season coming to a close, we are planning 2018 events to include a fitting out supper, Solent Cup racing with potentially a following cruise across the channel, and an Autumn rally.  We will also try and re-plan the North Sails sail handling/tuning day if we have sufficient interest.  Please contribute any ideas for events
