E-WOW: 1600 Saturday 16th May – Farewell Windemere
This will be a post wrapping up the day. Something like
We very much hope that everyone enjoyed the first Virtual AOA Meet-Up. A number of us particularly enjoyed Nick Rogers taking us through the Windemere Jetty’s Swallows and Amazons exhibition. To counter this I know that there were some that thought ‘a few tatty old books’ didn’t belong in an Atalanta meeting. But overall I think everyone enjoyed learning about the Museum and its exhibits.
The ‘Virtual Meeting Room’ worked much better that many had feared. Technology is always a worry for many of us and although one or two had difficulties the Meet Up seemed to work alright.
It was particularly rewarding that the E-WOW became an international meeting with David and Michelle joining the England and Scotland Atalanta folk from the Virgin Islands. The call including a guided tour of their mountain top home and the views across the Caribbean from their windows which lifted everyone’s spirits!
The final Roll Call for involvement in E-WOW (in Atalanta sail number order!):
Mike Dixon – A1 Atalanta
Bernard Marshall – A86 Sassi

Thanks to everyone who took part. We look forward to being able to return to physical meetings although we now have another ‘arrow in our quiver’ for keeping in touch.
