Winter Champs & Laying Down Supper Preview

John Crooks - 28th October 2007

It's that time of year again where we dust off our DJ's, purchase new frocks and break ankles in ridiculous high heels. The Lark Winter Champs & Laying Down supper is nearly upon us!

For those that haven't been to the Laying Down Supper all you need to know is that it is big, fun and one of the years highlights!

The general itinerary for the weekend is...

We are expecting a big turn out with close to 50 boats. As usual competition will be fierce on the water, in all fleets.

Further details of the racing will be posted shortly.

Saturday Evening
After racing, everyone heads off to their accommodation to spruce themselves up for the Laying Down supper. The majority of people make use of the accommodation deal we have at Sedgebrook Hall. There is a jacuzzi, sauna & pool to relax those post racing, aching limbs! Alternatively, there are plenty of B&Bís around but you wonít find anything closer than Sedgebrook Hall.

Transport is provided from Sedgebrook Hall to arrive at the sailing club for 7pm. After last year we would ask that a few people take their own cars down to the club so that everyone can get there in time for dinner.

On to the main event, there will be a 3-course meal followed by a wrap up of the 2007 season and the Annual Prize Giving, not to mention the much anticipated 2007 Duckhams Award. A live band, "High Five", will be there to get everyone up on the dance floor to see in the early hours.

Transport will be laid on to take you back to Sedgebrook hall later in the evening.

For those still capable the competition continues on Sunday to round up the event.

One of the questions every year is, "is it strict black tie?", and the answer is, get as close to black tie as you can. We donít want people to not come because they donít own a DJ.

See you all there..
