Welcome back to sailing – Afternoon tea
24th March 2018 4pm
We are holding a welcome back to sailing afternoon tea on Saturday 24th March at 4pm.
There will be sandwiches, cakes, scones and of course tea and coffee. There will be tickets on sale this Wednesday evening in the foyer. There will also be a sign up sheet up on the notice board over the weekend.
Hope to see many people there and support our club. If you can’t make it why not buy a ticket for a family member or a loved one.
Its the last talk tonight a joint effort from our Commodore Peter Finney and our Rope and Training expert Adam Savage. Get down for a fun informative night and a chat about the forthcoming new season.
7,30 pm start and finish by 8.30 so plenty of time for a drink and chat afterwards. Hope to see you all there.
On Saturday 24th March starting at 11.00am all the boats stored in the Boat Shed will be taken out of the Shed. Can all owners please attend on that day and if they cant make it please can they nominate a substitute to take their boat out of the shed and put it back on its berth. Dave Moore and Peter Glynn usually oversee this “event” and help all as required.
The following Tuesday repair begins on the back wall of the shed so it must be cleared of all boats by then.
Within our Sailing Club, March is a very busy month getting the club prepared for another amazing season on and off the water. So we thought we’d carry out a bit of maintenance work on our website.
Welcome to our updated online home.
We would like to thank Dave Smith for his tireless work in keeping the previous site up to date with all of the things which happen across our club and hope the updated site meets everyone’s needs.
If you have any comments about the new site, please feel free to visit our comments page and send us a message … Contact Us
