Galley & BBQ volunteers

I desperately need people to volunteer for galley and BBQ duties this year. As it stands there are no volunteers for most of these duties. ( thank you to the few who have volunteered). Please do not leave it to someone else to volunteer. YOU are the someone else! Without volunteers then the galley will not open and the various events will have no food provided.

Please do not leave it until renewals to try and find duty hours. If you would like to know more about what these duties entail or would like to volunteer please contact me as soon as possible.

Start of Season Cruise

For the Start Of Season Cruise this year, we plan to head round to Chichester Marina for the weekend of 16th & 17th April (Cinabbar will probably be going round on the Friday afternoon, possibly stopping at Bosham for the night, weather permitting).

Unless there is significant interest, there is not much point booking spaces in the marina this early in the season, but I will see about a meal at the (Chichester) sailing club if people let me know in time.

Gould Trophy

It is only a month to go before the first out of harbour cruiser race down to Lymington & back over the weekend of the early May bank holiday (30th April – 2nd May). As in previous years I will book a meal on the Saturday evening – probably the Kings Head, just up from the quay unless anyone has any other good recommendations. It would be great to see the sort of numbers we used to see – you don’t have to take it seriously if you don’t want to race, but it would be nice to have the town quay filled with Tudor boats again. If anyone is interested in crewing for the race, I am sure a boat can be found that would like a crew – just let me know or ask around the cruiser folk.
