MSC helps search for missing lottery winner. MSC helps search for missing lottery winner.
Last week, the MSC were contacted by a PR company asking if we would help promote an unclaimed lottery number. You may recall that we benefited from lottery funding for the purchase of our fleet of toppers which are now widely used, particularly by the juniors. Early on Saturday morning Mike and Adam were photographed looming alluringly out of the fog, knee deep in water and brandishing an enormous cheque. The footage was shown also on the local news (link in main article below). So if you've bought a lottery ticket recently check your numbers.

Saturday Ave Lap Race - Juniors out in Force
Yesterday 16 boats started the first race of which 6 were Toppers or Fevas sailed by Juniors plus a junior crew sailed in the Fireball. This is a great development!. There was no great drama on the start line or during the race. Well done to all those who sailed. Many people helped make this happen. Thanks to Mike Burke and Mark McKeever for briefing the sailors before the race. And Oliver Mason for setting up the day, with help from John Couperthwaite. Finally a thank you to Sailing Committee and Dickie in particular for persevering with the Ave Lap racing that enables our Juniors to participate.
