In the spirit of the on-going trials and tribulations of a surprise yacht club manager, let me tell you about the club burgees.  We have now sold all 20 of the hand stitched club burgees and I have ordered another 20.  Having talked to the manufacturer, he confirmed that the cost price would be the same as last year – £39.99,  But when I got the invoice it was more than that.  Turns out VAT and shipping were not included.  The actual price of the last 20 burgees, and the new batch, is £48.99.  So basically we have been paying about 20% of the cost of the last 20 burgees.  Brilliant.  To all those who have them, ENJOY !  But from now on, the full cost price will be charged – £48.99.
