There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Seeing as global warming and sea level rise seem to be such popular active topics here recently, how about a Waterworld/Mad Max type thing?

Steampunk? Sounds cool!

 

Not sure I'll be able to score the early finish at work on the day tho.

If I'm not sailing a boat, I'm probably just on Crew.

I think Waterworld would be kind of hard to do without a lot of effort into making costumes etc??

Steampunk, whats that?

What about "The Golden Days of Sail"??

 

Who's planning on coming this year?

The Sun Fast will be there. Maybe just choose a letter of the alphabet and that leaves it pretty open. It needs to be easy and open enough so that people can really run with it.

 

This was our dress up for it a few years back when it was a 'T' theme. We were terrorists (very bad taste i know but it was pretty entertaining and a very large night).

My sister just knows Booboo as "the large drunk terrorist who fell on her at Richmond" :-D

Yeah. A letter of the alphabet simplifies things.
