So we've got this event coming up.  It's set to be a rip-snorter sailing event for anyone who sails a skiff.

For any photography peeps, there's going to be a lot of colour and spectacle both in the rigging yard and on the water.  Please message me or post a reply if you are interested, and I'll see if we can't rustle up a spot on a spectator boat or a crash boat.
 
The Brisbane 18 Footers Sailing Club and Darling Point Sailing Squadron are hosting Super Skiff Day on 22 March 2014 at DPSS with two races from 1:30pm.

This event is open to 12ft, 13ft, 14ft, 16ft and 18ft skiffs.  There are cash prizes!! A BBQ, presentation and entertainment will be held after the racing from 6pm.

This will be a great opportunity to see the different classes of skiffs in action together on  Waterloo Bay.

The event coincides with the ‘Old Skiffies Day’ at DPSS as part of their 90th celebrations. A great day to catch up with sailors from previous eras and today’s skiff sailors.  Launches will be available for those who wish to follow the on water action during the races.  Spaces are limited.

A question for someone with a bit more extended Excel knowledge that I.

Referring to the "sample" on Drive, I'm trying to create a table and graph of the "work in hand" based on a forecast revenue table.  Work In Hand is the full value of the job counting at the beginning of the project (first month) and reducing slowly to the last month of the project.  What I want to do is use the forecast monthly revenue values to work out the work in hand at any given month.

I'm guessing some sort of OFFSET formula may work but I'm not very experienced in them.

Also happy to try some VBA code if that's easier.

Is this the right room for an argument?

Story
Tagline
a sailing nut with a working problem
Introduction
Loving hubby to Brooke and Dad to Ella and Jaspar, my next true love is sailing.  When I find spare time, I also enjoy photography (though I'm the equivalent of a weekend hacker in golf), embracing all things techie and getting involved with our sailing club's internet presence (+Brisbane 18 Footers, web page and Facebook pages) as well as virtual sailing with VSK Australia.

My online mantra is "attack the post and not the poster", and I don't feed trolls.  

Please don't be offended if I don't add you back or interract with you in G+ land, my time online is limited!

We've had our daughter here since she was 3/4 mths old. Staff are very friendly, centre has been upgraded since we started with a second pool and a cafe!

If you're looking for a big serving, look no further than the Coaldrake's bacon, egg, Swiss cheese and BBQ sauce melt on Turkish bread... omg so good! Their other melts are also pretty damn good. All of their sandwiches are made in the impossible small kitchen in one corner of the bookstore. They also offer rice paper rolls and of course cakes and cookies. There are a number of low tables outside and also some tables and chairs inside - much better option when the winter westerlies are blowing! They can get a little busy (due to the small kitchen the number of staff is necessarily limited!) but be patient.

Close by our work - we go there for the morning "happy hour" coffee ($3.50 large/$2.50 small). It's pretty much just a "hole in the wall" type of cafe with a few chairs and tables available, we always just get takeaways. Reasonable range of sandwiches, wraps, foccacias and salads, with their "loyalty card" extending to these as well as the coffees.
