Working Party – 31 October 2015

It is that time of year again for us to have a work party.  The objective is to prepare the facilities for the long winter ahead.  We need to start a bit earlier due to the World Rugby Cup Final later on in the afternoon, so we would like an 8.30am start please.  The more members we get the earlier we can finish.  As usual those turning up early will be rewarded with a bacon roll to go with your first cuppa of the day cooked and served by the Durleigh Bake Off Team, and of course there will be a free lunch.

It’s an informal social event so come along and enjoy.

The task list is on the link below.

Saturday 19th September we held our second Comet race day,              We were greeted with à race officers nightmare (no wind)

However we managed to sail a couple of races, and those that endured, enjoyed.

After a fickle first race we retired to the clubhouse (Lynn’s Pantry) for sandwiches teas and cake, in the hope that the wind might pick up, and it did. So we set off àgain with a change of course ànd a little more wind, whiçh strengthened towards the end of the race.

Well done all who persevered and stuck with it.                                                   Nice to see some new names on the podium,
