Flag Officer Forum – POSTPONED (TBC)
During 2018 the flag officers plan to hold at least two flag Officer Forums where we can update you with what we have been up to and members can bring things up that they would like to have discussed or ideas that they think will be good for the club. The first one will be held on Date TBC [see above], 8.30pm in the clubhouse. Food will be available as usual.
I hope all Sailing Duty members have received the email from Dutyman that was sent out on Saturday, if not please check you junk mail folder. The preferences page can still be found by logging in to Dutyman and selecting the “New Duities” tab.
At the moment we have a few duties to fill in the existing roster:-
- Patrol boat Crew open day 19th May
- Race Officer open Day 19th May
- Patrol boat Crew Family fun day 3rd June
- Race Officer Sunset 4 Friday 22nd June
- Race Officer Summer 3 & 4 23rd June
- Race Officer Summer 5 & 6 30th June
As you can see we are particularly short of Race officers so if you have the ability or need training and would like to be a Race officer pleas get in touch.
Friday evening May 25th 7.30ish onwards.
Come along to the club house and practice or learn them useful knots, hitches and bends for sailing.
We will cover; a reef knot, round turn and two half hitches, bowline, Running bowline, clove hitch, bowline hitch, Figure of eight, sheet bend.
See you there.
PS If you are a Knotter and would like to staff a base then please contact Sharon Emery Social Secretary by Wednesday 23rd May.
Locking the Main Compound
A reminder to please lock the main compound, even if you assume that others ‘will be coming in soon’ to get their dinghy. A member arrived shortly before the race on Sunday and the compound was open with no one around. Default position is to lock the gate as you leave the compound.
When attending a race or a cruise, please can we all remember to offer a helping hand to the Patrol Boat crew, particularly at the end of the race as our ribs require 4 or 5 people to get them up the slipway in comfort.
Normally, I think we are pretty good at doing this but occasionally, perhaps when the rib has been required to stay out longer than normal, the PB crew can find themselves short of help.This is gentle reminder to make sure that we don’t leave them stranded at the bottom of the slip whilst we enjoy our hot shower or beer!!
Great Tudor Bake Off
Join us for the Great Tudor Bake Off – Friday 16th June.
Enter one or both categories and using the basic recipe plus your own flair and creativity to present some stunning bakes to the judges.
Recipes for each category attached.
Cinabbar & May (from the Fareham club) are off to the eastern channel for our summer cruise this year, starting 21st July and planning to return the 5 August. The aim is to start at Fecamp and get as far as Boulogne-Sur-Mer before returning via Eastbourne / Brighton. Attached is the rough plan, obviously subject to weather, like all such trips. The navigation is pretty simple, although many of the ports are very tidal.
Everyone is welcome to join us, either for the whole trip or just part.
If you have more time off, you can either set out earlier for a slower trip to Fecamp (maybe via Brighton?) or more leisurely return.
Please let Moira or myself know if you are interested or want any more information.
