Evening. Good trade. Nice touch when the Guv arrived and went around and greeted each table and group. 2 out of 6 handpump lines were in cleaning which restricted the choice somewhat.

Evening visit for a meal after sailing the Swale in the Thames Barge Orinoco which was a friend's birthday treat. A good welcome from the landlord who had organised the sailing event, a most enjoyable evening. Beers on offer were as already listed by Mr. Pirrip.
