Air - 12 Nov 13 General

Plans being made to commemorate the D-Day Landings in association with the RNVR Yacht Club in Normandy, 4-8 June 2014

Next year will be the 70th anniversary of the D Day Landings and RNSA HQ are looking to hold an event with the RNVR Yacht club in Normandy to mark the date

The outline programme is as follows:

Branch and individual cruise programmes timed to arrive at Ouistreham on 4 or 5 June 2014, noting that the weather played a large part in the events of 1944 and a planned early arrival allows some flexibility. The programme in outline is as follows:

1900 Formal Closing Dinner (gentlemen blazer and club tie), venue tbd
Sunday 8th June Depart for Branch cruises, individual programmes as required

I have mentioned this to some of you and if we could get a few boats from the Falmouth Group to go along that would be great. I am certainly interested. If you think you may also be keen to try and make however tentative your plans then please let me know and I can feed it back to the organisers and it will help out with planning.

Hope to see you on 1st December at RCYC and we can talk more about this then.
