Our near neighbours had a visit from the local walk in thief over the bank holiday weekend and members are reminded not to leave any valuables in the changing rooms and to be alert for any strangers on the club premises.
Please ensure that doors close behind them at all times. The main front door, two white doors at either end of the platform and the changing room doors should be retained by their latch (not deadlocked) at all times. If you are the last person to leave it is your responsibility to make sure all the doors (including the balcony door), birdcage gates and the prom gate is locked.
The Club does not assume responsibility for any lost or stolen personal property so please keep all personal property under observation or secured in a locked locker. If you do become the victim of a theft, immediately report it to a member of the committee.
Thieves are again targeting credit cards, cash, phones, cameras, and other electronic equipment in particular. Please pass the word around and make it your business to keep the club safe and secure.
The club is running a Solo Open Meeting and Eastern Area Championship on Saturday 24th June 2017.
Entries before the 24th June would be very welcome to help us with planning for the event.
Club members are requested that they DO NOT park their cars on the Prom on Saturday 24th June to allow maximum space for visiting boats attending the Championship.
Thank You for you Co-operation
Steve Corbet (Sailing Secretary)
I have a lot of past copies of Cockleshell Magazines and was wondering if there is anyone in the club who would be interested in having them.
There is one solitary one dated 1967!
Then there is a run of them starting in 1973 through to 2007 with one or two missing such as 1976, 1998 and 2002. I have no idea why they are missing and it maybe that they will turn up at some stage.
I am trying to have a bit of a sort out and just cannot bring myself to just throw them away if there is someone who would like to look at them.
