Oars, Rowlocks & More

** update: The ideal oars are circa 7ft (2.1m) long and wooden if anyone has any they would like to donate **
Have you been in the back of the shed or garage at the weekend and have found rowlocks or oars that you no longer have a use for?
The club tenders seem to be lose these quite easily and we are asking for any (singes or pairs) that anyone has that they would like to donate to the club. If you could pop them just inside the front door of the club on the left as you get into reception that would be fantastic or down by the club tenders on the racks.
Please note any Oars and Rowlocks left on the racks by the weekend will be painted a wonderful colour or two so we can easily identify them in the future and hopefully prevent them from walking quite so easily.
Also, if you happen to have a dinghy trolley or wheels that you no longer need then we could use those also, I can collect if local!
Thank you
Scott

BYC Nore Race Saturday 19th June

Good News! We can run the Nore Race this year! There was some doubt we could get on the pier, but it’s all OK!

 

Programmes are being posted out to clubs right now. You can also download a copy from www.benfleetyachtclub.org. Follow the link at the bottom of the first page.

 

More good news – the Prizegiving will be the following Friday night as usual, as we don’t have to invoke the socially distant options considered in the printed program.

 

It is only about five weeks to the event so please get your entry in as soon as you are able. Thanks.

dinghy park / lower car park security

over the last week I’ve been to the club dinghy park to work on boats 4 times, 3 or these times the gates have been wide open with the lock left hanging and twice with the code still displayed. Now I realise the lock and gate aren’t the best or biggest theft deterrent, but it does go some way to keeping the general public out. So please, if you’re first into the car park, close the lock back up and scramble the code and if you’re last to leave, shut the gate and lock it back up please, it’s not rocket science people, I’m sure you wouldn’t leave your front doors open or your keys in the lock when you go out, so please don’t do tantamount to the same to the club dinghy park.

Winter Dinghy Park

Hi All, It’s that time of year when the sailing season is over and the winter series will begin (after the Cruiser and Sandhopper liftout 21/22nd October). As per the Club program, all dinghies should have vacated the dinghy park in order for these manoeuvres take place. Specifically rows E,F,G.
If you own a pico or laser and wish to pay for storage for the winter please contact your class captain to discuss rack storage and how you will put your boat on the racks. It is YOUR OWN responsibility to ensure your boats are moved.
