Waiting for the Tide

It’s that time of year when news (sailing wise at least) we are stuck in the doldrums, so a few items that may be of interest from the Sustainable Anchoring and Mooring webinar I attended earlier (there are more coming up, with two Solent based on The Green Blue website).

I’m old enough to remember quite significant seagrass areas on either side of the Tudor moorings. They were a great indicator that it may be time to go ashore before you ran out of water! Although the new Advance Mooring Systems aren’t particularly helpful for drying moorings like ours (the purpose is to keep the chain off the bed, and if a boat is settling anyway that won’t help!), there was another element of these moorings that caught my attention. They use helical screws driven deep into the sea bed that give you a clear and measurable strength of hold, and with the elastic rode in particular, the swing area is reduced alowing a higher density of moorings. Something to watch for the future.

As ever, feel free to drop me an email at this address, it is always nice to hear from members. Any ideas of things to include in the Tidal Diamonds would be most welcome.

Let’s be careful out there.

Reporting Accidents, Incidents and Near Misses

Just a reminder to please record all accidents, incidents and near misses in the ACCIDENTS AND INCIDENTS LOG BOOK, located in the Exec Noticeboard in the clubhouse entrance lobby. In addition, please let the Officer of the Day know if an accident or incident occurs at a club organised event. In the event of a major incident where serious injury occurred, or could have occurred, the Officer of the Day needs to notify the Commodore or their deputy as a matter of urgency.

The Exec will review all reported accidents, incidents and near misses to identify any lessons which can be learnt and any changes which are required to club policies or procedures.

The Commodore or designated club official will initiate and maintain any contact with other Agencies and parties such as the Harbour Authority, RYA, club insurers or police, in relation to any accidents or incidents as required.

Thanks for your help with this. Can I wish you a good season ahead.

VHF Courses

As part of our ongoing commitment to training, the Sailing Committee have arranged 2 RYA VHF courses / short range certificate. The courses will be run at the Club on the following dates, Sunday 06/02 and Sunday 27/02, the proposed time for the course will be from 08:00 to 19:00. The cost for the course will be £99 per person with an additional fee of £60 per person, which is an RYA Exam fee and will need to be paid prior to the course (I will send the link beforehand)

Course aims:

To provide clients with an understanding of radio rules and regulations and be competent and licensed to operate a marine SRC VHF DSC radio. A VHF SRC licence is a legal requirement for anyone who uses a ship’s VHF or portable VHF Radio. All new VHF Radio users need to obtain this certificate to operate their radios safely and legally.

Course content:

The VHF course covers the Global Maritime Distress & Safety System (GMDSS), marine VHF radio operations and voice procedures and the operation of VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC). You will be taught how to use basic radio language and protocols and the correct use of various channels. Learn how to make calls to other radio users, emergency calls and send a distress alert.

Course pre-requisites:

No previous experience is required to enrol on the VHF course. However, you will be asked to learn your phonetic alphabet before the start of the course. NATO Phonetic Alphabet chart

Please note that the VHF Exam Fee is payable online to the RYA before the start of your course. You will receive details of how to do this in your booking confirmation.

If you are interested in completing the course please could you email your name and also a preference to which date you would like to attend, if you can only attend one of the dates please can you let me know which one in your email. We have a limit of 12 places per course so it will work on a first come first served basis. I look forward to hearing from you, my email address is andy.healey

To date we still have 3 places left on the 06/02 and 9 paces on the 27/02.

Thanks to All Retiring Committee Members

At the AGM on Sunday, I must apologise for forgetting to thank all of the committee members who have retired from the Exec and the other committees, especially Colin Thorpe who has done a sterling job as my Rear Commodore for the last three years, two of which have been very difficult, and Denise Rogers who managed the Social Committee through a very challenging year.

Members Awarded Medals

It gives us great pleasure to share with you that two of our club members have been honoured for their services to the country. The medals awarded honour their achievements in the medical field and international development field respectively.

Maggie Hodge (Lieutenant Colonel Margaret-Ann Hodge, Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps) has been honoured by The Military Division of the New Year Honours 2022 and has been awarded The Royal Red Cross medal by Her Majesty The Queen.

Nina Laurie (Professor Nina Laurie) has been awarded the BUSK medal from the Royal Geographical Society in 2020.

Here is some background on their impressive achievements and I’m sure you’ll all join us in extending our congratulations and thanking them for their continued service to our country.

Maggie Hodge RRC

The Royal Red Cross (RRC) was established on 23 April 1883 by Queen Victoria and first awarded to the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale.

The award is made to a fully military nurse of an officially recognised nursing service, who has shown exceptional devotion and competence in the performance of nursing duties, over a continuous and long period, or who has performed an exceptional act of bravery and devotion at her or his post of duty.

Maggie has been a nurse in the British Army for 21 years joining from training in the NHS in the early 90’s. She has been deployed to Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan and South Sudan as well as other exercises and deployments for bespoke short Ops with specialist teams.

She says the work she has been most proud of has been working in a specialist nursing area (Critical Care) both in the UK and on Ops overseas. She built the first critical care in Camp Bastion in 2006, returned during a very busy time in 2010 and again in 2016 managing teams of multi-national nurses from the UK, US and Denmark. She deployed to South Sudan in 2018 as the Senior Nursing Officer to run a small hospital for the United Nations in Bentui in the north of the country. At the start of the Covid 19 pandemic she was deployed to the London Nightingale as a mentor / facilitator in the organisation of the clinical equipment needed to open a large-scale hospital in a non-standard hospital location, her deployed experience giving her a unique perspective.

Nina Laurie

The BUSK medal is awarded for conservation research or for fieldwork abroad in geography or in a geographical aspect of an allied science.

Nina’s award recognises her work as an exceptional geographer and is in recognition for her field-based research in the Global South. Nina’s work brings together interconnected concerns about social inclusion, international development and environmental sustainability. This has involved innovative field research in South America and South Asia on indigeneity and development, human trafficking and international volunteering. Nina’s detailed fieldwork has yielded important insights into local experiences, but she is always mindful of how these local experiences are shaped by and affect relationships at different scales (such as international volunteering organisations or trafficking networks). Her research is fundamentally collaborative and inclusive, involving early career researchers and students, local academics, community organisations, non-governmental organisations and, where appropriate, government and multilateral institutions. Nina’s work has been an inspiration for many and continues to shape geographical debates within academia and beyond.

Nina started her career working in Peru in the mid 1980s focusing on women’s social movements during the Peruvian Civil war. Her interest in how women organise during times of crisis led to collaborative work in Nepal with returnee trafficked women and with groups working on indigenous rights in Bolivia and Ecuador. She is now working back in Peru on how rural livelihoods can be sustainable in the context of climate change in Amazonia and the desert of northern coastal Peru.

Well here we are in 2022 hoping the decade is going to start improving. Sailing wise we have the Icicle series starting soon and socially there’s the Inter Club Darts (see above – again, we wouldn’t want anyone forgetting). Further events should be published sometime around renewals – I can sense the anticipation for the coming season already. Cruiser owners are planning the work ready for launch (with suitable contingencies for possible restrictions at the wrong time!), and some hardy dinghy and kayak owners, and rowers have just kept going of course (not implying cruiser owners aren’t hardy too, working under their boats in all weathers!). It was nice to hear some members were interested in the piece in the last TD, and it wasn’t just an old club member rambling on trying to fill some space!

So, welcome to 2022 and…

Well, prepared for sparse content between Christmas and New Year I posed a question last week. This week, to make the most of the question, I’ll provide the long answer.

Back when the club was based adjacent to the Eastern Road bridge we lived under the constant threat of losing our lease, which was always short due to plans to widen the Eastern Road. Well, although we did finally move to our current location the road is still the same width, so I guess we could have stayed put; aside from the fact that we would likely still be on notice of imminent move, I for one don’t miss the ‘fun’ of trying to cross all the lanes to head north (or head south and sort out turning round, which wasn’t as easy when the airport was opposite – although the windsock was handy!). During that time we kept patching up the old clubhouse not wanting to spend too much money on it in case we had to abandon it. The half that was originally the workshop became incorporated into the bar area to make it larger (you have to get the priorities of a sailing club right after all) and the portacabin toilets at the back were, well, perhaps best forgotten – but a vast improvement over the brick.. shed by the east slip. Anyway, at some point, and I don’t remember exactly when (I was quite young after all), we acquired a new bar; one solid enough to be worth salvaging and transporting to our current location. In its previous life it was a bank counter, if memory serves in the Havant branch of TSB, and we managed to salvage it when the branch was refurbished. Bank counters were very different back then! So there you go, a nugget of useless information this week!

As ever, feel free to drop me an email at this address, it is always nice to hear from members. Any ideas of things to include in the Tidal Diamonds would be most welcome.

Let’s be careful out there.

… and here’s to a Happy New Year (and a good sailing season)

Boxing Day Race

This year’s Boxing Day race will start at the club line at 11am. This will be 2 hours after low water but will mean a more sociable time to be out racing after the festive overindulging.

For this race to go ahead we still need a trained up patrol boat crew to volunteer via Dutyman. Hopefully the weather will be favourable on the day for a festive race.

Last Tidal Diamond before Christmas so I’m going to pose a question here for everyone to ponder over the coming week (as if you’ve got nothing better to do). The Tudor clubhouse has quite a nice bar counter compared to some (not all, but for a self help club that has always been running on careful budget we’ve done well), but where did it come from? Has anyone ever wondered? Does anyone remember? You’ll be please to know (maybe) that I can provide the answer next week.

As ever, feel free to drop me an email at this address, it is always nice to hear from members. Any ideas of things to include in the Tidal Diamonds would be most welcome.

Let’s be careful out there.

… and have a Merry Christmas

Waiting for the Tide

A slightly late Tidal Diamond this week as WebCollect went down just as I was saving a final draft before sending. So having re-done half of it and carefully checked the other half I shall send it winging its way without further delay.

As ever, feel free to drop me an email at this address, it is always nice to hear from members. Any ideas of things to include in the Tidal Diamonds would be most welcome.

Let’s be careful out there.

Boxing Day Race

This year’s Boxing Day race will start at the club line at 11am. Unfortunately this will be 2 hours after low water but will mean a more sociable time to be out racing after the festive overindulging.

For this race to go ahead we need a trained up patrol boat crew and helm to volunteer via dutyman. Hopefully the weather will be favourable on the day for a festive race.

Saturday Gig Fun

It’s a good job the seals weren’t out on Saturday afternoon to see the not very serious antics, but what brilliant sports you all were.

The cold wind had no impact on the relay rowing crews but not sure the spectators would say the same.

With the force 5+ from the North West, the run down to the return mark (the first starboard buoy) was quite easy but the return leg seriously tested the power of the bow oar with at least one boat having to swap crew around as the rudder was overwhelmed.

It was great to have some kayaks out too, and (Santa) hats off to them on the paddle back.

Team Olive won overall. This may have been partly due to one crew member being seen rummaging in the dressing up box before the race started 🤣 Team Freedom joined the finish 25 seconds later despite their rather clever (and annoying 🤣) undercut of us at the buoy. Team Rosie took another 10 minutes or so, but they deserve extra points for stopping to recover their Santa hat from polluting our beautiful harbour.

A huge heartfelt thank you to each of you that helped with the fabulous buffet and bar. It was all wonderful.

A couple of pictures are attached and if you follow the club on Facebook do take a look at the video posted on Saturday 😊

Keep an eye on the calendar as we plan to have a full agenda of serious and not so serious rowing events next year for everyone at the club to enjoy. As always if you’ve not rowed before and want to join our fun, do get in touch.

In case I don’t write again this month, wishing each of you a peaceful, happy, healthy Christmas.

Waiting for the Tide

It’s that time of year when content gets a bit thin on the ground. Thankfully there’s a reasonably steady flow of things coming through, but I still have to think of something to add here, so a couple of things spring to mind:

  • cruiser owners, don’t forget that the jet washing season finishes at the end of the month (not that it’s the best weather to be doing that sort of work, so I hope everyone has already done it)
  • a note for everyone’s diary (see also Diary Dates below) is the 9th January 2022 (we’re nearly there) for the Tudor AGM

As ever, feel free to drop me an email at this address, it is always nice to hear from members. Any ideas of things to include in the Tidal Diamonds would be most welcome.

Let’s be careful out there.
