Spring Dinner 2001

folboatdinner03.JPG (677830 bytes)The annual Spring Dinner was held on 24th February 2001.    In previous years this event has been held in the Liverpool Arms in Menai Bridge, but this year by way of a change the Old Boat House Restaurant in Red Wharf Bay was the chosen venue.  Some 23 people travelled, from as far afield as Leeds, York, Liverpool, Shrewsbury, Warrington, Caernarfon, Dublin and of course Red Wharf Bay.   The North Wales contingent of folkboat sailors were very pleased to welcome Graham Wilson from Howth YC (Dublin).    Although Graham has moved from Folkboats to a somewhat larger Nicholson, he still keeps an active interest in the Irish Sea Folkboat Sailing.  As has become the tradition a good night was had by all, and our thanks go to Robbin Pinner, for organising the event and ex folkboaters and now supporters, Gordon Brown and Joyce Griffith, for their invaluable assistance.
