Yesterday the Lord of Mann did her first Tweet and so did POMIII whilst on a sail. Unfortunately her Majestic was not Tweeting us, but who knows what might develop, after all the Princess Royal who named our previous boat in April 2005 knows about SFTD.
Now Tweeting has Royal approval we might be able to get our skippers to use Twitter to update our status during sails and updates made using Twitter will appear on our Facebook site. So "Like us" on Facebook to follow us..
The latest addition of the free newspaper for yachtsmen "All at sea" features an article written by Geoff Holt who we met at the boat show. The article details the disabled access boats that appeared at this years show, which included our new boat. You can view the article by clicking here.
