1. Squib National
Two days of intensive rain seriously affected many of the
seventy two competitors trying to reach Dartmouth for the
National Squib Championships, including those from Weymouth who
took seven hours by road to reach the regatta venue. Despite
this, the Squib competitors were blessed by a magnificent
sailing day in Start Bay on Sunday for the first races of the
Championship, with good winds and warm sunshine.
The practice race in about 8 knots
of wind did not get away until the third attempt under a black
flag, and after a single lap of the 2.4 mile course it was won
by Paul Aspinall in ‘Guy Falkes’. However winning the practice
race amounts to nothing if you can’t win the Championship races.
We are sorry not to bring you any more local news as the guys
don't seem to have a PR or Media feed. But we all welcome
them to the river, have fun and spend well guys!
The Importance of Being Ernest

year 1912, with the Titanic sinking, mass production just
beginning on the Morris Oxford and the Turkey Trot causing
outrage across the dance floors of polite society, this tale
of the strange contents of a handbag found at Victoria
station has been subtly adapted to extract every drip of
humour and contemporary relevance.

18s. Pre show suppers available in the Flavel Arts Cafe for
just £15 for 2 courses. To book,
