Graham retires, Gavin takes over.
First and foremost, I am sure that the Laser fleet will join with me in expressing our warmest thanks to Graham Howlett for his long-term involvement as Laser Class Captain. Graham has now retired and is replaced by Gavin MacLachlan. Gavin is a relatively recent arrival to the club (2013/14) and is berthed beside the 2.4s next the carpark (sail no. 195760). So if you want to find him when rigging your Laser, you know where to find him.
Some administrative items:
Minor Series races - Lasers will continue what was started last year, by including two training sessions to replace two of the Minor Series races during the summer. Details will follow in due course.

Ian Gregory has, once again, kindly arranged a series of combined adult/youth Laser training sessions. These will be run approximately monthly during 2018/19. I’ll circulate the specific time and dates once the Members’ Handbook has been published. Ian’s final training session for this winter takes place on Saturday 3rd March 2018 (rigging advice from 11am, ready to sail by 12 noon).
