‘Boat Fettling’ Day

As a prelude to the new season a number of Club Members took advantage of the ‘Boat Fettling’ Session on Sunday on get out on the water to check everything still works, with both, their boat and their bodies ! Three of our keen Juniors were out on the water first followed by the representatives of the equally keen but not so young Streaker Fleet. They quickly found their sea legs and re acquainted themselves with the ‘joys’ of an easterly wind blowing across the Dam leaving buoys 8, 7, 6, and 5 in an ever changing wind shadow.

Meanwhile into the Club House 7 Club Members were finding out all about the delights of First Aid as they took part in a RYA First Aid Course. Many thanks to Adi Benson of Pennine SC for leading a very informative and interesting course for us.

Don’t forget the Sailing Season proper starts this Saturday (23rd) !
And for those of you who haven’t read your Blue Card properly the first race is at 1.30 !

And where did this week's snow and bad weather come from !!!!!
Those keen enough will have to dress up warm .................................
