Here is the first part of the Programme for 2019. Things are getting going soon so please check the dates and the duties if you are a race officer or Safety Boat Driver. The personnel columns do not take account of any swaps arranged after Dutyman was populated.
Important dates are:
16th March - a work party to get the club boats ready for the season. There's a lot to do so a big turnout would be good. We especially need cadets who know the mysteries of rigging dinghies but also adults to tend to many other tasks.
17th March - Safety Boat Familiarisation and Race Officer Reboot. Pete Hammond and Chris Nurney will be leading sessions for those on the duty list and for anyone who would like to join the merry throng. As the rugby guys and gals say "nae referee, nae game" so we always need volunteers.
23rd March - Start of the dinghy season. Get some points on the board now. Sunny and warm weather with a fine south-westerly almost guaranteed (please note though that the Commodore is not in charge of weather).
6th April - Craning In. Speak to Steve Taylor or Lindsay Tosh if you want your boat craned in. Jim is booked with his crane.
6th April - To mark the start of the season, Poppa and Dom have exceeded even their past exploits and there will be a wonderful supper centred round a selection of roasts. Booking is via Webcollect and there is both a limit on numbers and a closing date of 3rd April so now is the time to book. Book here. Look for Events on the right hand side of the Webcollect page.
I look forward to seeing you.
Lindsay Tosh, Commodore
