On the 27th December 7 hardy members of the D-Zero fleet will be heading off to Yorkshire Dales SC for the Brass Monkey. Having just checked the weather it is looking a bit ‘Brass Monkey’ and I am glad my drysuit is ready for action!

At least we have been assured of a warm welcome at the club by our class chair, let us hope the bacon butties are plentiful on arrival as some of us have a long journey north in the early hours. At least the wind forecast has moderated even if the temperature has now plummeted.

A report will follow after the event once we have all thawed out.
