Super Saturday saw more events happening than Meghan had attendants! After the AGM the room was packed to watch the wedding and judge, sorry, admire the outfits and enjoy the ceremony. A particular favourite was a certain Mr Clooney... Then there was the FA Cup Final and the Dell Keys - phew.
Let’s not forget the sailing in all this; light winds on Saturday saw slow racing for the CDB’s and much the same for our fleets on Sunday but, once again, our keen cadets were out fighting for the Spring Series.
Please forgive us if this is longer than Meghan’s train but there’s so much to tell you!

Clarina Cup – amended start time
The Clarina Cup start will be at 10.30 from the Quay on Monday 28th May (amended from 11.00 published in the Red Book). The Clarina Cup is a long-distance race for Fast Handicap boats and it is hoped the earlier start will allow competitors to explore some of the further reaches of the harbour. The start time of the Whitsun Weekend Cadet series is unaffected by this change.

Club Doors to Manual
You may have noticed (or even been frustrated by) the club doors being in security mode which requires your red card to open them. During the fine weather a large number of non-members try to access the club to use our facilities. Not only is this a security risk but it is unfair on you as paying members so please support the staff in this matter and have your red card with you for access.
Dingy Park and engine store
If you own a boat in the dinghy park and you are unsure of what space it is allocated, please contact a member of office staff to confirm your space allocation. We must be respectful towards other members and appreciate the frustration when they find someone else’s boat in the space they are paying for! If your boat is not in its allocated space, it will be moved with immediate effect.
We have been through the engine store and we have removed several engines that have not been payed for and are not showing a 2018 sticker. If you find your engine missing, please visit Steve or Georgia in the office, these are the only people who will be able to resolve this issue for you.
New Topper courses added
Topper have donated 6 new Toppers to the club for use free of charge. Therefore, we will put on two courses in the week starting 9th July and the club will not charge for use of club boat.
Why not ‘Have a go Topper sailing’? This is a course for those considering converting to a Topper dinghy and is 9-11 July.
Already familiar with Toppers then try ‘Topper Improvers’ to hone your skills on 12-13 July. It is also possible to use your own boat on this course.
Please note the pre- requisite for both courses is sailing ability stage 3 or above who are sailing this season. To book your place, please go to the month of July on the bookings calendar HERE.
