At a well-attended meeting at The Fox & Hounds last week, Matthew proposed an FLC meeting afloat on his fine yacht, to coincide with the America’s Cup World Series race off Portsmouth in two week’s time. Friday 24 July is practice day, which should provide a fine spectacle for members. There will be a limited number of places available. More info by email when I have it.

Next Meeting – 24 April, The Ship

Our next meeting will be held at The Ship, Langstone. I hope to see you there.

Stimulating and erudite – the FLC way

If you are looking for stimulating and erudite conversation, the Friday Lunch Club exists for that purpose. Specialising in endorsing our members’ prejudices, the Club ensures that all its meetings are conducted in such a way that members leave refreshed, enthused, vindicated and supported.
