This year we have a great response to the Maxi photo competition with 17 entries. Maybe the restrictions on our activities have made us think back to better times. The photographs come form locations both by and beyond our shores with images including Sydney Harbour, Germany, Netherlands and Ireland showing how Maxis get around.
With so many entries, I am changing the voting this year. Everyone has a total of 5 votes that you can apply to as many photos as you wish, all 5 to one photo if you like it a lot. In this way we should get a clear winner.
Could you please e-mail me your votes to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 10th in the format of picture number and the number of your votes you wish to award (note – picture numbers and titles are underneath the photographs).
With no AGM date set at present, I will consult the committee on how and when we announce the winner.

The plans were great, there were 9 MOA boats and 20 people participating and an Indian safari supper awaiting our order from the local restaurant. Then, as so often this year, the weather stepped in!
The weather forecast was for force 8 SW winds for Friday night and Saturday morning/early afternoon. We hope that it would pass through earlier but it was not to be. Gradually boats dropped out and we ended up with only Richard and Lorraine Sams on Suive making it to Lymington having arrived Thursday for a repair. Peter and Sue Stonestreet in Blue Rider sailed to Cowes on Friday and tried to head west on Saturday but the winds were too strong. Below is the wind chart for Saturday 26th at Hurst showing what they were heading into!
Undaunted, the rally continued but in another form. Richard and Lorraine kindly hosted the pontoon party aboard Suive which saved me getting Lookin Foor Kloos alongside in the strong winds. We were joined by Peter and Sarah Sands from Blue Lightning, Peter Blade from Lapis Lady and Gary and Carole Heward from Amylou, all of whom drove down for the rally making us 5 boats and 9 people.
In view of the weather impact on numbers, and it being challenging to do a safari supper on one boat, we changed plans and went to Lal Quila, the local Indian Restaurant for a very good curry dinner. Thanks again to Richard and Lorraine and to all who made the effort to participate.
