 SPRING CRUISE

Friday 30th April - Monday 3rd May 2021

We think the weather must have conspired against all plans for our Mini Spring Cruises

as even those that ventured out did so with seriously curtailed plans. 

Only one report received so far. If there are any more please send to webite@ea-cc.org

MOLLIE HOWES

It was with the greatest sadness that we received the news last week that broads legend, TMOR vice president, stalwart of the regatta and trustee of our club,

Mollie Howes had died on 10th March 2021.

 All our thoughts are very much

with her family.

Her son Paul has sent us this obituary.
