Important things you will want know about

Written by

Hello top sailing people.

A reminder that we are back sailing on the 4th of March. This will be our March Sprint Series which will feature two races back to back in the morning and one in the afternoon.

There will be one variation to that when the 505 open event is on. That day we will run 3 races back to back in order to incorporate club and 505 races.

 

Additional news, efforts are being made in the boat park to tidy up the park and to survey the whole thing so we know where boats are, and where spaces are free.

One thing that has been identified is that a lot of us have broken or missing boat tags. If yours needs replacing please e mail our friendly club Bosun, Matt Prichard. The e mail is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Prize giving update, we have 30 confirmed people for our event, I was hoping for 40 as that was the booking that I gave the venue. The initial deadline for advising me that you are coming and giving me your meal choices is by the 13th of March.

As far as paying I will be looking to collect the money now that the sailing season has re started. A very reasonable £22 per person for a 3 course meal and coffee. You need to pay me by Sunday the 1st of April.

We have to pay in advance and my last opportunity to do this will be Saturday the 7th of April.

Cash, Cheque, Electronic Transfer are all ok with me.

Wishing you all ‘Good Fortune’ in this coming sailing season.

Malcolm
