ANCHORS AWAY! by Emma Northcott

£6.00

Set at the Boating Club’s post-open-day committee meeting. Bill is due to retire as club Commodore and everyone except Bill is looking forward to his retirement. As each character fights to preserve their own interests tempers fray, old grudges are revisited and a blast from the past turns up to rock the boat. One final revelation convinces Bill to stay on as commodore, something that no one else is prepared to allow.
