This was tucked away in the middle of a post - just checking if anyone has responded to Malcolm - and posted the missing numbers to him ?
From MALCOLM KNIGHT
One admin matter - can I have the numbers back from and all three(!!) boats from Langstone (40,59,60) - my address is 434, Hurst Road, Molesey, Surrey, KT8 1QS - thank you.
Langstone Lady's number was 60, and, as no official was around, we left it prominently on a table in the Ahoy clubhouse, and thankfully, it seems it's been collected by Joe Lane.....does that mean it's safely accounted for now, or do we need to contact Joe, and ask him to post it to Malcolm?
It seems there is a high probability that Jo Lane has all our numbers.
40 was Bembridge - me - with Jo ?
60 was Langstone Lady - Frances - with Jo ?
59 was Sallyport - ( Nigel/Mark) - quote 'As Bowsman Mark started out with our number, though I thought it had been returned at the end of play on Sunday. Nigel' ( in fact its been put in a waste bin )
Please could you let us know if Jo hasn't got them all ?
Well, this is embarrassing, I was wearing No 59 on my back. At the end of the race, I removed it and discarded it. I was not aware that it was anything other than a race number and of no value to anyone. No one had advised me that the numbers needed to be returned. So sorry if I have let the side down. Happy to be given a damn good spanking if that helps.
