Past members Andrew & Virginia Smith recently visited Colemere and sent me this email. With their permission I have copied it for our Blog.
We had a great walk around Colemere and along the canal on Tuesday 22nd March. The sun shone, the grebes dived and there was not a breath of air for sailing! We met a member of CSC working on his boat and he kindly let us in to look at the Clubhouse. Embarrassingly we did not ask his name.
Nothing has changed! It even smells the same. We viewed the file which had photos of the previous Class Winners and duly photographed the ones relevant to us. The memories came flooding back. Do you realise that the first thing an OOD had to do in the early days was to walk up to the village pump and carry down enough water for the day!!!!! Thank goodness we moved quickly on from that.
We send our good wishes to all current members, it is a great location for sailing and for us a very significant part of our childhood.
Virginia and Andrew Smith
