In between family commitments I spent four days last week sailing with Bernard Upton on Lake Geneva. Many of you know that Bernard is our longest serving member, having bought A89 Colchide as a kit in 1958, built her in England and then shipped her to Italy where he and his wife lived for several years before they moved to Switzerland. We had a very enjoyable time and I’m very grateful for Bernard’s hospitality, including many memorable meals. I’m quite sure his remarkable good health and longevity are due in no small measure to his diet!
A89 has some unusual features which were described at our Annual Dinner in January 2009. I’m uploading several photos and a fuller report will appear in the forthcoming Autumn Newsletter.
