2018 Berthing Allocations

The berthing list attached is the most recent and differs from the one currently displayed in the club, which will be replaced this week. Can members please pay particular attention to the following;
 
  • It is now a requirement that all boats display a label on their launching trolley to indicate that payment for berth/s has been made. These labels, along with a cable tie for attachment, will be available from the Berthing Officer from Sunday March 18th onwards.
 
  • From April 1st in any given year, any boat NOT displaying this label and/or stored on the incorrect berth will be removed to another part of the dinghy park, without notice and at the owner’s risk. 
 
  • From April 1st in any given year, any member storing a boat on a berth with outstanding membership fees and/or outstanding berthing fee’s will be removed to another part of the dinghy park, without notice and at the owner’s risk, and issued with an ‘Abandoned Boat’ notification in accordance with paragraph 18 of the Club Constitution. If these outstanding fees remain unpaid, the boat in question will become the property of Elton Sailing Club on June 1st of that year, to dispose of in any manner deemed appropriate by the club.
 
  • The dinghy park is in the process of being re-numbered and a number of new berths have been created; new plans have been drawn up detailing these along with berths that are no longer available for use and this will be available to view shortly. Can members with a berth in the dinghy park please pay particular attention to these changes, as indicated on the berthing list.
 
Many Thanks
 
Stephanie Fuller
Berthing Officer

Wednesday Evening Talks 21st March 2018

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.

WINTER BOAT STORAGE ENDS – 24TH MARCH 18

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.

Welcome to our new online home

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

March 2018 Working Parties

All club members are invited to attend working parties in the first three weekends of March 2018. This is your chance to smarten up the club in readiness for the coming season.

Works parties will take place on Saturday and Sunday of the first three weekends in March namely Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th , and Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th .

Work will commence at 10.00am and finish at 4.00pm on each day.

A couple of hours from each club member on any day or days would be appreciated. It is great fun and ensures we are ready to go at Easter. Please click on the button below for the list of jobs to be done, and please sign upon the identical list on the Notice Board in the foyer. It will also be helpful if you can bring down tools and materials which suit a particular job.

Please note there will be no sailing on any of these days.

Berthing Fees 2018-2019

It’s that time of year again! Berthing fees will soon be due for 2018/2019. It has therefore been decided by your Council that berthing fees, which have remained static for two years, will this year increase by a modest amount. Berthing Fees for the 2018/2019 sailing season will be as follow:

Adult Berth – due on 01/02/2018: £48

Junior Berth – due on 01/02/2018: £37

WebCollect is now available to take your payments. Please click on the Web Collect Button below to start payment. Payment by cash and cheque, although possible, incurs a large administrative overhead.

You will need to choose the number of berths you require and the complete the form for each boat. Note that we now require the boat number rather than the sail number. This will help in identifying boats in the boat park. (In 90% of cases these numbers will be the same).
