End of Season

Published by under Club Notices

End of Season
Sadly, next weekend is the end of our main sailing season. We hope you have had a successful year on the water!
For those signed up for the Winter Series the fun continues….. (signing up means having entered the event by filling in the google form).
Please can we ask all those who have not filled in the sailing/storage form, that your dinghy is removed from the dinghy park as soon after the weekend as possible. We need to make space for the Cruiser & Sandhopper Lift Out the following weekend.
If you need assistance with trailers etc please contact your class captain who I’m sure can put the word out among the class to help.
Please do make this happen. It’s often left to a handful of people to move boats around that shouldn’t be there.
Thank you
