WHEN Brian Cobb chose Friday, September 13 to hold his Captain's Day for the St Clement's Veterans, he must have known he was on a winner.

Brian has that mischievous sense of humour as I found out to my cost – more of that on the facing page – but certainly Friday the 13th held no disasters for those who are superstitious.

The weather was perfect with glorious sunshine all day at Felixstowe Ferry where Brian chose to hold his day – although the wind made golf tricky – and it was generally agreed that this was the best Captain's Day ever.
