You should come join us. We will be on the 3-day that leaves Nov 14, I think, which is the cheapest sailing that month. I have an 8A Gty booked, which I hope is what we end up with. First time with no verandah, so it should be interesting. I am not even thinking about doing an FE for this sailing, or booking anything in advance, just getting on and going with the flow. The Meets thread for that sailing is very, very, very slow, only a few pages long, which isn't much considering the sailing is only about 7 months away.
