Congratulations to the 5 new and existing members on the level one course over the bank holiday weekend. Everyone came on leaps and bounds in confidence and competence and Steve and I really enjoyed teaching the course. Teaching the entire course outside was a throwback to my years teaching abroad, without the temperatures to match, but the smiles and screams of delight were worth it. If you were on the course make sure you get

Many thanks to all those who played a part in making lift-in a safe and successful day. An awful lot of work went on behind the scenes before the day and continued on all through the day.

With the relaxations of some covid restrictions, small mooring work-parties have begun this week in readiness for a late April lift-in. Many thanks to all who have given their time in a slightly different way to how things have been done in the past. I know they have worked hard in a variety of weather conditions to make sure everything will be ready for the season ahead.

With the increasing dinghy activity at the club it would be great to see some dinghy racing happen over the winter months. With this in mind I am planning and will be running a Winter Icicle Series. Club dinghies are available to book online for these races for club members. It would be great to see as many participants over the series as possible so whether you normally sail a dinghy
