Although our sailing programme has yet to start for the year, there is a lot going on. Maintenance Projects at the Club
We have builders in working on replacing our hot and cold water systems and heating boiler. This will unfortunately mean some inconvenience for Members. There will not be any hot water in the clubhouse until further notice. We will keep you abreast of progress and we expect all the services to be working in time for the next IOCA (Optimist Event) on the 18th March. If you visit the Club prior to Saturday 24th February you will need to access the first floor of the Club via the Office stairway as we have scaffolding and painters working on the staircase.
Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we complete these essential works.
