Letter from the Commodore, 22/01/21

Dear Members

I hope you are managing as well as can be expected in these continued trying times. A reminder to all that until further notice, the clubhouse remains closed and all organised sailing is suspended. We expect all members to cooperate with the constraints of the latest Government guidelines when associated with the club.

As we have said before, your committee is continuing to meet [virtually] and plan for the better times so that we can hit the ground running and I think we will all be desperate to make the most of every opportunity when the time comes. I am pleased to report that Ray Collins is definitely planning for better days with a new hip and a new and significantly quicker boat ready on the starting blocks!

Until then, stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you hopefully in the not too distant future.

Best wishes

Chris Flewitt, Commodore Locks


Quiz at the clubhouse

Why not come along to a quiz at the sailing club this year - it's friendly, and the questions aren't too hard (well, most of them!). Bring a team, or come and join one of the teams on the night.

We start at 19:30 in the clubhouse. £1 for members, £2 for non-members, 4 rounds, and the winner of each round wins a bottle of wine. Plus the bar is open!

Hope to see you there!

Volunteers to help operate the Bar

In an effort to be ready for a great season and fun year at the Locks in 2020, the Committee would like to ask for volunteers to help operate the bar.

We'd love to see more people in the club, not just the racers who most weekends do pop into the bar for a catch up after sailing.

One of the things we would like to do is have people available to open the bar while the sailors are on the water, so that members start to know that the "Bar is Open".

Anyone who would like to be bar trained and join in the fun, please contact Chris Reynolds and he can help organise this for you.

Members please remember to Book in Here to reserve a club boat.
