It may no longer be winter but we’ve had a lot of windy weather lately and there have been several boats blown over or completely off of their trolleys. Please make sure your boat is tied down, it will almost certainly void your insurance if it falls over and damages itself or someone else’s craft!
If you use a club boat which has a tie down please ensure this is resecured after use.
Saturdays open day was well attended by members with a number of guests enjoying the challening and exciting conditions. It was great to see old and new faces alike with around 15 boats taking to the water. The day stayed dry all bar a few drops in the afternoon with even a few pairs of sunglasses to be seen. We were all kept well fed with soup, hotdogs with the homemade scones proving very popular.
Like to get involved in the post race banter but would like to be sure of your facts
Then this could be the course for you.
RYA Race Rules Advisors Seminar at RBSC Sat 4th February 2012.
Run by RYA trainor -Trevor Lewis
No fee but you’ll need to bring lunch…..
This is part of the RYA’s initiative to improve rules dispute procedures with out resorting to formal protests, sounds just like what we do already but we do need a few people to be upto date with the rules!
This is being run in conjuntion with our neighbours at Hickling and spaces are limited (more than enough for us) but must be booked before hand.
Over 50 members enjoyed a great evening at the Filby Bridge Restaurant where after a tasty meal the prizes for the summer season were awarded. Daniel Bull our youngest prize winner was not there so should have received his prize on Sunday. This was followed by a quiz with rounds including sport, history, TV & entertainment; a pictures round and just to make sure everyone got a few points some questions on sailing.
Our Commodore – On this occasion the man with all the Questions.
