Its planned to float the new race buoys out after racing on Saturday. These will then be swapped over at low tide on Sunday morning with the faded orange buoys floated back in prior to sailing on Sunday. Low tide on Sunday is at 9:40am, so I plan to start at 9:00 which should give plenty of time to deal with the 6 buoys. To make life easier, it would be great to have someone assist.
It’s not the lowest of low tides, so I’d suggest a wetsuit or drysuit will be required.
There are always lots of jobs cropping up that need doing to keep the club house in order. I believe we can undertake some of these without needing to call in contractors. Instead of leaving all these jobs until a working party it would be nice to get them done as they arise. So if anyone out there from a trades background or DIY expert feels that they may be able to help in any way it would be great to hear from you.
I only have small jobs in mind, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Please drop me an email [email protected]
We need you to help us keep the club ship shape. Jobs need doing in:
- Mens Changing Rooms
- Club House Car Park
- Dinghy Park
- Bosuns/Race Hut
- General Club House
On the day look for Gary Burrows or Nick Cotgrove who will help you find your job.
We would all appreciate a little of your spare time from 10:00 so we can all enjoy the sailing without worrying about the jobs that need to be done.
We’re at a position where we could do with a few hours additional labour on the Seasafe displacements & Polly to get them anti fouled ready for the new season.
We have the paint already and we’ve booked the weather for both days. Now we just need some bodies to help put it on.
Sessions have been arranged for Friday @ 10:00 and Saturday at 9:00 (ish) for hopefully no more than 3 hours. It would be great if we could get 5 or 6 willing volunteers to assist each day. Please can you let Gary know if you can attend on Friday [[email protected]] or Toby for Saturday [[email protected]]
Don’t forget we have a work party planned for Sunday 4th at 10am, please bring along your gardening tools as we are clearing the Dinghy Park . Thank you for your support.

Planned working parties will be advertised over the coming months to continue to prepare the Committee boat and our displacement support boats for next season, but please speak with the Rear Commodore Racing if you would like to be involved….
