Working Parties - Saturday 9th and 16th March

I hope that you are all as excited as I am about the forthcoming sailing season. In order to get the clubhouse, boats and boat park ready for the season the club is holding 2 working parties on Saturday 9th and Saturday 16th March.

The work starts at 10am with plenty of jobs to be done ranging from painting, gardening, cleaning and boat maintenance through to getting all the newly refurbished marks out on the Tarn. Trevor (our Bosun) has been really busy over the winter keeping the club ticking over but now it is our turn to get the club spick and span for the new season.

To celebrate all our hard work we will be holding our traditional boat fettle on Sunday 17th March at 12pm for all those who want to stretch their sailing legs. The racing season then starts the following weekend on Saturday 23rd. Please be aware that the weather at this time of year remains very cold (and the water too) so if you are out on the water please make sure that you are wearing appropriate winter sailing clothing.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 16th (unfortnately I'm away at Sunderland with the Topper Zone Squad on the 9th)
