Another big thank you to all who made today’s PTBO a success.
The weather was kind to us with a light variable breeze.
Here are just a few pictures of today’s event.
Open to the public. Come along and experience the thrill of sailing. Change of clothes and shoes advised. You may get wet.
Two sessions during the two May Bank Holidays.
10.30pm to 4pm
A few members have been chatting about the possibility of organising some form of dinghy cruising this year. We are not sure what form this might take, perhaps a weekend, with an overnight, or maybe just a day sail down a river – returning on the tide.
Using suitable cruising dinghies to journey to local rivers or estuaries we could possibly include camping and other activities. Let us know your thoughts and depending upon interest, we would be happy to organise a small group. If you are interested please complete the brief (10 questions) questionnaire at
Please make sure you leave your surname when completing the questionnaire, so we can contact you after we have analysed the results.
A big thank you to all of you who turned for the work party today.
We managed to get most of the important jobs done, below are just a couple of them.
Because the grass was very wet it was decided not to cut it today, so members when you come to the club please spare a little time to do some mowing.
On a separate note the new season starts next Sunday 1st April, look forward to seeing you there.
Members are reminded we have our Spring Work Party on Saturday 24 March starting 9.00am. This is a chance for all members to get together and participate in a socially fun day for the benefit of all.
Please let Steve know if you are coming so we know how many to cater for.
See poster for more detail.

The 2018 sailing season starts on Sunday 1st April. Now’s the time to brush off the cobwebs and check fixture and fittings. Here’s to a year of great sailing.
Join us in the clubhouse to celebrate the end of another fantastic year of sailing. Racing will start at 11am and prizes awarded to the winners. Mince pies and mulled wine will be free to all members and available lunchtime. Even if you are not sailing, come along and enjoy the festivities.
The Winter Series starts on Sunday 5 November and concludes with the Christmas Pudding Race on the 10 December. Recreational sailors are welcome also.
Each sailor, racer and recreational, are required to do at lest one duty during the series. Please log into Dutyman, select ‘Volunteer for a Duty’ on the Roster page and click on the swap symbol to the right of the duty you would like to do. Once you have volunteered, you are automatically entitled to sail the series.
Despite very light and variable wind for the 1st two Sunday races the wind picked up a little for our Father’s Day race.
‘Tea On The Lawn’ followed with scones, butter, jam and of course clotted cream.
It was a great success and would propose that we put it on the calendar for next year, thanks to all that made it happen.
