Dinghy Park Day – Sunday 27th Jan – Working Party Volunteers Needed

Your committee has decided to launch a big “park push”, think of this as our New Year Resolution! Therefore on Sunday 27th Jan (weather permitting..) a team will be putting in more wooden rails for boat bows to rest on and to generally make the park area much more organised. We will also be sorting out the fence in a similar way to the club house side. And will need support clearing rusty old trailers, removing old boats, cutting back the over grown brambles, applying wood treatment to the fence posts and finally digging to free up some more spaces! As you see it’s quite an extensive list for one day!

To achieve all this we need a large group of volunteers, ideally 15-20, already we are about half way there, but to really make the desired impact in one day some more offers of help would be very much appreciated.  The aim is to start work around 10:00 a.m., grab a well deserved lunch break, then finish off by about 3:00 p.m.  It should be good fun and hopefully not too strenuous. If you would like to help, please could you just e-mail Paul at so I can  plan the work and get a reasonable idea of the number of volunteers.  Thank you and happy New Year!

Race Management Courses

During the weekend of 1st, 2nd and 3rd of March Chris Simon will be in the Island to run various Race Management courses which are open to all the islands Yacht clubs and SCSC. The provisional program is:-
Friday evening a talk of about 1 1/2 hours on the new RRS,
this should be of interest to all racing sailors.

Saturday morning 3-4 hour course on Rules Advisor training.
This is connected with running arbitration hearings (a quicker simpler
approach to protest hearings).

Sunday 09:00 to 17:00 Club Race Officer course.  This will be
both a refresher to those who have already done the Club Race Officer
course and an introduction for those who have not.

All these courses will be FoC.
