Icicle Series 2016
This year we had a low turnout for the series coupled with the occasional days of bad weather.
The results are:
1st Place : Tom Abbott Streaker
2nd Place : Eddie Oliver and Malcom Molyneaux Comet Versa
3rd Place : Dan Langdon Topper Blaze
Just a quick reminder of the start dates for the season:
Wednesday evening sailing starts on 6th April
Saturday afternoon sailing starts on 9th April
In order to qualify as CASC (Community Amateur Sports Club) 50% of our members must attend at least twelve times per year. As we have to be able to prove this, from now forward please can EVERYONE sign in EVERY TIME they come onto club premises.
If we cannot do this, we will lose our CASC status and its 80% business rate relief , this would mean having to increase the fees by 25%.

No doubt our Bosun Richard Loveless will have other jobs he wants done. A list of all jobs will be posted in the clubhouse as usual.
