The world is topsy turvy and the Wooden Boat Festival has been cancelled, but we are still planning for a Skiff regatta on February 13-14 next year.  A suggested program is shown below, but at this stage all options are open.   We need a group to organise this: if you can help contact Jane Johnson jenjane2000@hotmail.com,  0400 717 140.
