and Fitting Out Supper Details
February 2022

January has now gone and many of you are busy getting your boats ready for the new season. Whilst on the subject of boat maintenance please do not leave ladders either propped up against your boat or unlocked around the boat park.

The bar is now open on Tuesdays for drinks only , why not come and join the Tuesday Group for drinks and general Chit Chat .

The new CCTV system is now up and running. You may recall that the Cruiser Class paid for extra cameras in the car park that will monitor our boats in the winter and our cars in the summer when we are away sailing.

 This year the Montgomery Race will be on Saturday the 9th July. Normal rules apply start 1000 hrs MYC .
