DOLPHYN'S OBSERVATION
"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and the talk beside the fire: It is the time for home." - Edith Silwell

We will be running with ORC – they have a great special running so no reason not to get a valid certificate.
This will be a 4 week series run every second weekend with the fleet challenging the previous winner for a Virtual Cup.

This series will be the Groggy Series – with each new series having unusual nautical terms to make them a little more fun.

Groggy
The term groggy means dazed and weakened or intoxicated, the way one might feel after he or she partakes in a goblet full of its root word grog, which is a mixture of rum and water. The term grog is a reference to a British admiral who ordered his sailors' rum to be diluted; he was nicknamed Old Grog because he wore a grogram cloak.
