Re: Drinks

OK,

I intend to be in the Doric tonight (Tue 10/12/19). If my train's on time I should be there a few minutes before 2000. Hopefully see people there - if no-one turns up I'll just read my Private Eye in a corner.

Re: Drinks

Re: Apologies to several new posters

Looks like this forum could do with a new moderator. It's not a very arduous job, is anyone up for it? I would be happy to do it, provided y...

Re: Women's Rooster Aquafleece Pro

Hey folks! I'm trying to find a Women's Rooster Aquafleece Pro size 12. Let me know if you've seen one in a shop or are selling one. Feel free to drop me a list of sailing shops that sell sailing clothing in Scotland since I've been struggling to find some good ones. Thanks! https://i.ibb.co/wzYFS4...
