Work off the festive calories with some One Metre racing at Fleetwood

Remember last year wearing those silly jumpers and a few wearing very silly hats. Well this year the invite goes out again for the same day, although unlike the last couple of years being unable to hold it at Fleetwood, well this year we have no weed.

We also think the jelly fish have emigrated South to warmer climates as we've had no sign of them either.

So for all you IOM enthusiasts out there, Derek's invite is come to Fleetwood to walk off a few of those festive calories, have fun and eat some more mince pies.

Again it will be the one wearing the funniest Jumper will be champion of the day. Never mind the sailing, extra points can be gained by an addition piece of head gear (antlers included), although Tommy Turkey Mills will definitely take some beating.

So bring along your speedy boats on Wednesday 27th December and see if you can beat last years top three, Paul Allen, Darrin Ballington and Martin Roberts.
