Work party

Published by under Bilge

Thanks to David, Toby, Steve, nick, Paul, Rupert, chaz, Peter and Len from the sandhopper fleet for fitting the new fenders to the slipway which I’m sure will be appreciated by all..
Also thank you to sam husk who was scrubbing the slipway from very early till late with the aid of a small team who very kindly turned up to help. If you missed the opportunity to help you could always buy sam a beer next time you see her in the club.

The ladies showers are almost finished, we have doubled the size of the changing room, installed 5 new powerful showers which are running off the supply from the cascading boiler system, within the next few weeks we will have cubicles in the showers for additional privacy, the toilets have been painted, new chrome paper holders, soap dispensers etc are in and we will be adding new hairdryers.
All the work has been carried out with minimal disruption with the help of a few members and some professional trades. Many thanks to Sam Husk, Alex Hadley, Isabel Duce, Peter Thompson, Nick Elmore, Toby Speller, Paul Spratt and Ian Bradley for giving up there time to help.
Thanks also to the various trades for their work…MHS Radiators and boilers, Mike whistler building work and John Woods Taylor plumbers.
I hope you enjoy the improvements and that the increased capacity creates an even better atmosphere for the increasing number of female sailors that TBYC is lucky to have.
