Hi All,

Helen and I met through the Club nearly 4 years ago, when I sent my last Chairman's e-mail to everyone wishing them a Happy New Year, and asking if there were any eligible female windsurfers out there looking for a date. Helen replied and we have been going very steadily ever since; in fact the only serious arguments we have had as a couple have related to sail size selection!

So at the last Ocean Motion event this year, at Hayling on 31st Oct, while everyone disappeared from the Inn on the Beach after our meal, I took Helen down to the beach and proposed to her under the moonlight; it seemed appropriate to ask her at the British Windsurfing Mecca. The Wind Gods were my Witness.....and she said Yes.

Just got to set a date for the wedding, but need to check out the tide-table and long term weather forecast first.

Bernie & Helen - congratulations, all the very best. I can recommend Hayling as a great place to get married!

Thanks Andrew, Beth and Jonathan for your Best Wishes. Jonathan, did you get married at Hayling? Sounds like a good option, especially now that the Inn on the Beach has been done up a bit.

That's great news Bernie. Congratulations to you both. As an OMWC bride myself I can thoroughly recommend it!
All the best and hope to see you both at the beach soon.
