On the assumption and in hope ... that we will be allowed go return to something approximating to normality come the spring.....

I think we need to arrange a Fitting Up Supper.. (Thank Moody Sabre for mentioning it in another place).
I am happy to start looking for venues etc and trying to herd cats. ... I may regret that ?

Obviously at the moment there is absolutely no point in looking for dates as we don’t even know when things may begin to pretent to be normal.. So for now please.... who is interested and where would people prefer?

Well done for volunteering. (y) Please put me down as interested (with a possible +1).

I believe that the ECF event is more traditionally known as the 'Fitted Up Supper', but I fear it may be 'Laying Down Supper' time before we're allowed and safe to get together again.

I have no firm views on location, but guess I'm more likely to get there if it were around the Orwell (or further north) area, than in the Deep South. (Sorry 'Lil!)

Perhaps Ipswich might be a suitable location, good road and rail access and of course everyone can get there by boat, drink too much and sleep it off onboard 🍻

The new Foxes place is large enough and wouldn’t charge a hire fee ( just book a party in) Food very good. Now called “ The Outlook” and starting to get popular (Covid permitting).

I arranged a get together two or three years ago at Balkern Gate, right next to the A12 at Colchester. It seemed easily accessible to most people as it is in the middle of the East Coast

Yes, i attended that one David. With it only being accessible by road it means people cannot have a drink though. I'd prefer somewhere i could get to with the boat, it is, after all, a sailing event. But, happy to go with the flow.

I am tempted to suggest Brightlingsea... but I suspect I will get wrong of people for being lazy and wanting something on my doorstep.

Preferably somewhere with accommodation within walking distance (because I'm not optimistic about the prospects of getting Pagan back in the water this coming year)

If it's somewhere we can get to by boat, you're welcome to come with me and i have a spare cabin.

Count me in as well.
I'm with Paul in thinking somewhere we can sail / get to easily with public transport is a good idea.

Now you are making it hard work ... Sail and public transport does very much limit the options ... Ramsgate Dover or Ipswich Lowestoft???

Haven marina Ipswich, few minutes from the station. Hotel across the road. Restaurant onsite or plenty around the waterfront.
