What a busy weekend we had last weekend -  1 & 2 April 2017.

A small group of members worked hard on both days to complete the staircases and now they look really good.  hopefully the galvanising will reduce the maintenance required for a number of years - thank you to Robert, Micky, Adrian, Sara and Andy and all those others who have helped in the background.

Sunday was a great opportunity for a number of new members (and newish ones!) to learn about yacht handling and spinnaker work.  Despite the light winds we had a useful time on the water hoisting, dropping and gybing the spinnakers, as well as loading winches and general cockpit management.  If any other cruiser owners are interested in helping us train crews then please contact Alan Thomas, as he is our organiser.  Thanks to Alan, Steve and Jeremy for running the day and to Alan and Guy for the loan of their cruisers.  

At the same time we had the first JYS session of the season.  The light winds meant that everyone was on the water sailing.  It was well supported by the older kids who assisted Hugh run the event.  So, please spread the word and get more youngsters down to take part in the sailing - and we will try to get their parents involved to encourage them to join us!

Please look at the sailing programme for the next events.  Sundowner of Friday from 6pm.  Hope to see you there.

A small selection of photographs are on the Club Facebook page.
