What do members need to entice them out onto the water when the weather is getting cold and nights are drawing in?
Colin has already signed-up with HardyToo, so the opportunity of a good but not too long sail, along with the promise of a pit-stop for lunch and a "rest break", en route, would be good.
Fireworks display, naturally and a good hostelry with plenty of space, warmth and a varied choice on the menu to accommodate the needs of vegans to carnivores.

Other than space at the Hostelry (Wheatsheaf), I believe that the 2016 Cruise to Yarmouth ticked the boxes and satisfied the 28 souls on the 7 boats, so what else can Jane find for 2017 to entice out enough skippers and crew to better 2016?

Table Dancing?  Or dancing on the tables! - it worked for Pete & Beckie on this year's "Taste of Spring" event, with Sue M. & Jane gracing the Folly tables, assisted on occasion by one or two misguided male crew mates, including Ian G. - although no photographic evidence has escaped the cruise censor's approval, as yet?

So does anyone have knowledge of a great venue that offers entertainment within a four hour sail of Portsmouth that can top the Folly for dancing (don't want bring our own tables) and has a better menu selection that the Wheatsheaf?

All suggestions to Jane and Colin please.
