We regret that we are unable to accommodate specific dietary requirements and cannot guarantee that any of our food is suitable for those with allergies. However, if you have any concerns, we will be able to provide a list of the main ingredients upon request.
Regarding the specifics of the competition, as is usual the following photographic categories will apply, however this year, due to the number and variety of entries in previous years in the original art category, we have split this into two, so…
- Things Nautical
Your original art:
- Artwork (painting, drawing or similar)
- Craftwork (an item)
- Wittiest caption for a photo in the humorous category
All entries to be anonymous and must not have been entered in previous years. We will supply blu tac for the display boards and organise the numbering.
Prizes will be awarded for first place in each of the above 5 categories and for the wittiest caption for a photo in the humorous category.
So now is the time to sort through your digital albums, memory cards or wherever you keep your photos and print them ready for what will be a fun and enjoyable evening for all!

Of course, all members are welcome to attend on the night, even if you don't want to eat!
