Definitely not the weekend before last!
Well done to all the Chew Feva sailors
who went to the Worlds last month, great results all round. We are proud of you!! Detailed report coming soon.
The water is warm and a bit of rain is refreshing. Welcome new members – please come and say hello and do get in touch if you have questions.
SECURITY: The outer gate should be kept locked.
If there is a legitimate reason to leave it unlocked the padlock will have been removed. Do not leave it unlocked for one or two guests to arrive – wait at the gate for them.
Dinghy park and boat registration stickers.
It is August – all registered boats will have stickers clearly displayed by now. Allen and Brian are carrying out the audit – they can assume that if there is no sticker the boat is not registered and therefore can be moved, to release space for new members’ boats.
Club dinghy bosun.
Do you or your children use the club dinghies? This is for you!! Help spread the load – a couple more volunteers needed. Contact me – Peter Barnes will be in touch when he is back from holiday. firstname.lastname@example.org
CAUTION – rib drivers, sailors too.
The water level is dropping (yes despite the rain!).
Take care near Little Denny, Denny Island and of course near the launching areas and the concrete jetty. If you aren’t sure where the shallow areas might be, please ask.
Unfamiliar with the new tractor? Please read the instructions and ask for guidance.
