The second session on the update on the racing rules will be on Friday February 10th 20:30; Further rules quizzes and a look at the requirements of a protest committee.There will also be some rule 64 (propulsion) videos. It is not necessary to have attended the first session. It is hoped that these will suit people who are experienced racers and those recently starting to race.

Rack Working 2017

Many thanks to all those who have come down so far and helped out with the work to the big slipway on the west racks. We are making great (if rather damp and muddy) progress. Next weekend we will have to move 70 new lengths of timber from the cage to the racks and fix them to form the new slipway.

If you can spare any time on either or both of the above dates please come down and help out. If you have a cordless drill you would not mind using that would be much appreciated.

We will be starting at 9am both days.

Any queries contact Tim Wright 07946 474307

A lot of you are already aware that we have some major work to carry out on the big slipway on the West Racks. This will involve a number of working parties so if you can help out at all it would be much appreciated.

The proposed work dates are:

  • Saturday 7th January
  • Sunday 8th January
  • Sunday 15th January
  • Saturday 21st January
  • Sunday 22nd January

There will be more dates to follow so please keep an eye on the website and the noticeboard.

If you can help out on any of these dates please put your name down on the list on the board in the clubhouse.

Thanks
