Work Party

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.

New gate post fitted at entrance from car park to slipway
New pole installed for weather station

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.

Winter Series

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.

 

Father’s Day race and ‘Tea On The Lawn’

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.

Christmas Pudding Race Result

Although Sunday morning started with little or no wind, by 11:30 it picked up to approximately 6/7 mph.  The light winds, blue sky and sunshine made for some enjoyable, yet challenging sailing.

Winners were:
1st Tom Abbott (Streaker)
2nd Dan Langdon (Blaze)
3rd Mike Hayes and Steve Chidgey (RS400)

Big thank you to all those who made the day a big success and a fitting end to the sailing season, including the galley staff who supplied the mince pies and mulled wine.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our members.
