*The Rias Baxas Rally and the Annual

A full description of the events of the Rias Baixas Rally, to be written by Ed Wheeler, will be included in this year’s Annual. Those who attended the rally and who plan to submit their logs for inclusion in the Annual may therefore wish to bear this in mind and perhaps restrict their descriptions of the detail of the Rally to incidents that were special to their boats or crews. This will prevent an excess of repetition and save the editor some work!
Ed would appreciate being sent any photos that give an impression of the rally.  Similarly your web editor would like to receive any of your best pictures to put on the website.

ICC Annuals
We are pleased to advise that every single edition of the club’s Annuals is now available on the website.  See under ‘Home > Annuals’
