Owing to the vicious speed of the stream, as well as high water, the 2012 Christmas Fun Race was cancelled, and Race Officer Steve Collins devised a Nautical Quiz instead.

He announced that it was the first time in recorded Minima history that a race had been cancelled without anyone complaining.

The groups of questions fell under headings including Dinghy Sailing, Shape Recognition Signals, Flags used in Racing, Sound Signals and British Naval History. 

Out of the four competing teams, the winners were David Cane, Erica Bishop, Joe Murphy and Les Rowlandson. They share the first prize of a Two Ronnies DVD. Should be fun working that out!

Shortly afterwards, members retired to the Cammasan Chinese restaurant, where all those attending seemed to find the food very good. This was followed by a late session at the Minima bar.
