That's surely rather a hard reflection on your eventual branch surely, Wanders! Incidentally, I was a guest in your regal yacht club on many occasions (during your tenure I suspect) and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of both the bar and the dining room. Barton on Sea GC isn't too shabby either....
