Marina Etiquette Boatpark

Published by under Club Notices,Cruising

With the cruisers having swapped places with the dinghies can i remind you of the standard Marina Etiquette for all Halyards to be fastened away from the mast. This will ensure a more peaceful boatpark without the clanging and continue the goodwill from our neighbours.

many thanks

BIG Thanks.

Published by under Bilge,Cruising

On behalf of Bob Crane and myself a big thank you to Peter Thompson and Steve Hopper for their invaluable help between 00:15 and 04:00 last Saturday bringing some of the Cruisers as well as the committee boat onto the shore ready for the cranes to lift out. As well as being hard work it was a joy to work with them both. I personally learnt from Peter how valuable a stern line can be as well as receiving a  fantastic fully clothed swimming lesson.

A sincere thanks very much guys. Wayne & Bob.

A Big Thank You

Published by under Bilge

To everyone who helped on the Work Party yesterday. It was a great success. A special mention for Nick Cotgrove for running the Dinghy Park, Howard Warrington the Bosons Hut and Rick Paxman the Ladies Changing Room. Also special thanks to Graham Dare who is doing some further work today.

I have just been informed that Gordon Sanders worked up to his armpits in brown sludge on Saturday to get both the displacements up and running, he was ably assisted by Toby Speller and a monkey wrench. Thanks guys.

Well done folks,
