Friday First Aid

Friday First Aid

  • not sure where the club first aid kits are or what to expect to find in them?
  • don’t know what to do if you or a child has an accident on the beach, in the water or even at home?
  • then come down to Cadet Night on Friday evening at 7pm.

David Elkington is our Cadet Week First Aid officer and he is generously giving up his time to share his professional expertise with us. Dave and his volunteers will be running sessions for adults and children on basic first aid guidance and advice to keep us all safe on the beach this summer.  He will also go through the locations of the clubs first aid kits and what to expect to find in them.

Why not come down earlier, enjoy the food DD’s has put on for us, menu posted below. DD’s will serve food from 6pm.  See you Friday.

Unwanted sailboards, kayaks and canoes

Published by under Club Notices

You may have noticed the unsightly raft of old sailboards, kayaks and canoes cluttering up the racks to the east of the steps as you enter the dinghy park.  These items are sitting there, rent free, and this storage space is required for ongoing club projects, the storage of boats and other gear essential for the continued sailing and racing at the club.

These boards have been moved to the back of the club, where you have one month to either collect them and take them home, or put them under your boat in its allocated space in the dinghy park.

After this time has elapse (24th June 2017) and boards left will be disposed of accordingly.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Southend Triathlon – This Sunday

Published by under Club Notices,Racing

This Sunday, Southend has it’s Triathlon and we all need to be aware that there will be a lot of activity around the club, road, beach and in the water. Our Regatta starts at 12:45 so hopefully most people will be on the water.

The first Triathlon swimmers start at 12:00 swimming from the Shoebury Common slipway and then coming up the beach before Thorpe Bay YC slipway. They cycle through Barling and Wakering, then returning for a run along the Seafront in front of the club. I estimate the first runners will be around 12:45, the cutoff for the race is 16:00. Entrants are parking in the council green car park next to ours.

John Boshier 1930 – 2017

Published by under Club Notices

Club member John Boshier has, sadly, passed away leaving Mary, his wife and a son Christopher. John was a member for many years, originally joining to enable him to sail with his son. This was in a Mirror dinghy later John moved onto bigger things with a Sandhopper, in 1981 and John became a leading light in the class, becoming class captain for several years in the late Eighties.
Always a participant in weekend racing and Weekend and Weekday cruising for many years, John was sailing into his mid-eighties with Janet, our club administrator.

He will be greatly missed by family, friends and the Sandhopper class.
