The Turf Club also makes foreign visitors most welcome.
|The group gathers - jackets and ties preferred for men|
As the preferred dress code for men is jackets and ties Richard had borrowed a jacket for the occasion and lent out two of the 3 ties he has on board - one borrower became a very temporary member of Channel Sailing Club and another had Richards "bunny" tie (lots of rabbits - not the Playboy variety).
On arrival at the course we were met by Mr Lalah, a guest services agent.. He apologised that there was not a free box available but saw us comfortably installed in the stand, with bar, food service and Tote to hand.
