Commodores Oct News

Only a few more weeks now before we make the club and surrounds(all buoys in and jetty moved to safe mooring  and lots more)  ready for winter.  We have not organised an October Family Day but I hope to be at the club each Sunday in Oct so please let me know if you require any help or want to use a club dinghy.


We have begun excavations to repair the wall by the pontoon and also made an accessible path from the slipway so there are some hazards until we finish the work but we will be have much safer access to the pontoon.


Winter opening  – We have operated  limited winter access to the clubhouse over the last three years, but in all honesty the take up has been minimal and there have  been difficulties regarding water supply, security and access to ribs.

Over the winter, the clubhouse is used to keep Sails/foils from the club dinghies dry and mouse proof and to undertake maintenance to keep everything up to scratch.    Services at the clubhouse are turned off and frost proofed.

With this in mind there is no restriction on use of the club and lake – conditions permitting-  through the winter months.

The main concern is  that a responsible and suitably qualified person be nominated  on any sailing day to ensure safe operation ashore and afloat,and to correctly close down the building at the end of the day.


Dates for your diary.


Final Fling  29/30th   Your last chance to enjoy two days of fun and racing starting after lunch on Saturday.  Some of us will be staying over so please join us, all very welcome.


Working Party  5-6th Nov   This is your chance to get “Down and Dirty”, a chance to don old clothes and wellies and help with a grand tidy up/clean and winterise club dinghies and general  sortout.


AGM and Dinner  Sat 12th Nov   Matt our  Hon  Sec has already circulated details but this is to remind you all.  We do need to know who is coming to the  dinner as we have a min number  for viability, so please let Matt know your family numbers by   Friday 23rd OCT




Best wishes to everyone
