Eastern Area Dinner
13th April 2013
Royal Burnham Yacht Club

We are holding our annual Eastern Area Dinner at the Royal Burnham Yacht Club on the River Crouch and look forward to the attendance of as many of our members as possible – the club has the capacity for up to 100 diners! The date and times are Saturday 13th April 2013 @ 7:00 for 7:30. We will have an illustrated after-dinner talk on a nautical theme which promises to be informative and entertaining.

For those of you that would like to use some of the day to explore the mysteries of the Dengie peninsular I would suggest starting at the town of Maldon and admiring the large fleet of Thames Spritsail Barges. As HW Maldon is around mid-afternoon you can even avoid seeing the mud! I am proposing to take lunch in the Queens Head Inn on the Maldon Hythe from 12:00 onwards and would look forward to seeing as many of you that would care join me. I will try to see if we can get the chance to go on board one of the barges. After that, the peninsular will be your oyster!

To attend the dinner please complete the attached form and return it to Chris Neale to arrive by no later than 5th April 2013 as the RBYC needs 7 days’ notice to provide the menu options (menu attached) that we individually select. Overnight accommodation is available at the club, details attached. If you are interested in lunching at the Queens Head Inn, please indicate that on the form so that I have got some idea how many people to expect.

For those hardy souls that already have their boats in the water and would like to arrive at Burnham by river, you will need to berth at the Burnham Yacht Harbour and make your own arrangements. The hammerhead at the RBYC is only for temporary berthing. The RBYC is only a short(ish) walk from the BYH.
