Cadet Representative

Dear Members

I just wanted to quickly introduce myself as this year Cadet Representative.  My name is Lindsay and as many of you may know I have been an active member of the Cadet Committee for some years. I have 3 daughters who all loving being out on the water and participate regularly in both cadet and club sailing!  I have spent many hours in the water launching and recovering boats!!

I would like to thank Jeremy for all his hard work over the past years and sorry we could not mark his last year in a more memorable way due to the pandemic.  I am really looking forward to supporting the Cadets in getting the most out of the club developing skills and confidence on the water with the support of the parents.

Cadet Rep is not a job for one person and I am grateful to have received many offers of support but I will be seeking more over the year. Please keep an eye out for emails, website and Facebook updates!

I am very lucky to have Andras Gal, Nick Alston and Peter Quinten ready to provide a jammed pack Cadet sail training programme when restrictions allow for Cadets who are able to sail a basic course.   All the dates and times will be published in the club programme.

Conrad Stevenson has been able to arrange some Feva training for the older cadets (with their own boat) and we hope that this is something that can be developed in the future to enhance the fleet.  If you or older cadets would like to be added to the WhatsApp group please email Janet with your details and she will forward them appropriately.  We do have access to one club Feva but that will need to be allocated in advance to avoid disappointment (details to be confirmed).

Unfortunately, due to restrictions of some sort remaining in December the Cadet Christmas party will not be possible this year but I will endeavour to provide future events as soon as possible.

Look forward to seeing you all soon.

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.
