  1. Hi Colin and Tina. Got your note on Bide Your Time at Willoughby. Envious that you have had such a great first season on your boat. We're working on having a lot more time aboard from next spring onwards. We're hanging aroiund the Rugby area in case the ice comes. We have to be at Hillmorton in Feb for the repaint. What with the new cratch cover, she'll look the part in the Spring.Have a great CHristmas. Hope to see you on the cut next year. Pete and Tina. Bide Your Time
