Leslie Sheen

Published by under Club Notices

It is with deep sadness that I have to announce that Leslie Sheen passed away yesterday. Les was previously an active member of our cruising section and until recently enjoyed his lunchtime visits to the club with his wife Janet and friends.
Our sincere condolences to Janet and family.
The Club burgee was flown at half mast today as a sign of respect and funeral details will be advised in due course.

Update on Shoebury Common Flood Defence Scheme – an opportunity to respond

Published by under Club Notices

Thank’s for the update, Commodore! This is a matter close to our hearts, so it’s a shame that the ‘comments’ option was turned off. The best way to reduce conjecture is to repond quickly to members concerns. I’m sure that we’re all much happier now.

Unfortunately no one from General Committee attended the public meeting on the 16th at Shoebury High School which the members that did attend found disappointing and inexplicable.

Update on Shoebury Common Flood Defence Scheme.

Published by under Club Notices

A reminder – there is a follow up meeting hosted by Friends of Shoebury Common at Shoebury High School on Monday 16th December 2013 from 7.30 pm to 10.00pm. The meeting will be chaired by Peter Holmes from BBC Essex Radio and will provide a further opportunity for questions and answers regarding the flood defence schemes.

For the past two weeks, we have been in discussion with the council in which we have advised our concerns with the detail of the operational aspects of the Councils proposals and the actual necessity of a flood gate on the area around the slipway and the cobbled ramp which may affect our launching and access. This is in addition to the aesthetic impact of replacing the railings to the West of the slipway with a raised sea wall.

The Council have replied in writing that the present indicative plans show that the opening would be as wide as the present gap and they welcome the opportunity to work in co-operation with the club and will do all possible to accommodate the club’s views and concerns with the design.

At this stage of the proposed development, there are no actual published design drawings of the proposed flood gate. The Council have agreed to an on site meeting to review the indicative plans and your General Committee will petition the Council to ensure that any flood gate will be unobtrusive and that our access to the slipway and beach will not be affected.

Further reports will follow as soon as the design is published.

Boat Damage during Winds

Published by under Club Notices,Racing

A reminder that it is important that everything in the Dinghy Park is tied or padlocked down. Unfortunately this shows how easy others boats can be damaged. Please watch the video in full screen and you will see other boats lifting on their ties. Please respond to John if it is your sailboard.

YouTube Preview Image Flying Board Video

Unfortunately the Board landed on my grandchildren’s Pico, the fin on the board putting a hole in the deck.The board is an old 2.86 metre Tiga286 serial number XS0091.

If it has an owner could they contact me on 586854 or at [email protected]
