Welcome current and prospective members to the March News.
We have two new members:- Kedar Pednekar and Sanjay VJ. Please make them welcome and help them with the Sabres. Both have sailed in their younger days but are a little rusty. They have sailed in one of our Introduction to Sailing sessions and will be sailing the club Sabres for three months. Kedar will be sailing this Saturday afternoon, but not Sanjay.
Rob and Herman’s group have almost finished their course and will be racing with us this week. Paula, John and Jarrod’s group finished a few weeks ago. Hopefully some of them will return to sail with us. P, J and J are arranging another 6 week course commencing 17 April.P, J and J are also holding half day “Introduction to Sailing” sessions. the second of which will be this Saturday morning.
Thanks for Colin and Rob for manning the rescue boat last week. They and all the competitors got thoroughly soaked by the rain towards the end. Somehow John and Andrew managed to win line honours. The forecast for this week is much better, in fact it is perfect:- max 25C, mostly sunny, wind 10-15 knots.
The three Sabres are all rigged similarly and are available for use. Unfortunately there are only two launching trolleys at present, so one boat must be launched and then its trolley taken back to the yard to collect the third boat. Antony is kindly constructing a third trolley.
The minutes of a recent meeting are available and will be circulated via email..
See you on the lake!
