Notice to all club members regarding SUP Armada this weekend.

Dear Members.

Just a quick reminder about the SUP Armada. If you are planning to make the most of the wind on Saturday, you will be required to launch from either the north or south slipways as there will be no launching from the beach. You will be asked to sail up the very far end of the reservoir to accommodate the Guinness World Record attempt. Please note, there will be no day sailing tickets issued that day.

Thank you.

Wednesday 26th August Evening Racing!

Dear Wednesday Evening Racers,

The setting sun series finishes on the 19th August and we have our final fun race on the 26th August at 7pm.

To finish this year’s Wednesday series on a high, Keith has agreed to put on a BBQ whilst we are having prize giving.

The cost for the BBQ is £10 per head which will include a burger, piece of chicken, sausage and a beer (or soft drink). So that Keith can cater for us, he needs to know numbers in advance. There is a booking sheet with Keith for you to confirm your attendance and you will need to pay in advance. Booking will close on the 19th August.

Please could we all try to make the 26th a well-attended success.

For those of you that have been racing on a Wednesday, thank you for taking part and I hope that you have had fun.

A special thank you goes to all of you that have given up a week to be the race officer, and to Gavin who has volunteered to cover safety each week. Without the race officers and safety, we would have all missed out.

For those of you that have not tried Wednesday racing, why not join us for the fun race and get the bug for next year!

See you on the water soon.

Jon
