Another Successful Working Party

Another successful working party thanks to a dedicated and enthusiastic bunch of members. Fuelled with bacon rolls, teas and a hearty lunch all served by the Durleigh Bake Off team of Steve, Sue & Jon, we managed to complete a vast amount of work.

The jobs completed on the day:
New guttering & facia boards to front of clubhouse.
Fencing completed in mast down area.
3 x New fence post along hedge row.
Lots of grass cutting/hedge.
Race hut cleaned and painted.
Fuel store cleaned and tidied.
Items for rescue boat checked.
Abandoned Solo cut up and wood disposed of.
Richard Loveless took all rubbish etc to the tip.
Flag pole halyards sorted out, new toggles fitted on flags.
Rescue Boats cleaned

It was decided due to the chilly winds and the RBS rugby on, to do the painting on the next work party so the day ended at 14.15 hours.

A big thank you to all those involved.

As Part of our 2015 Race schedule, we are hoping to hold a Comet race day.

Also a Ladies race (not too serious).  Entries can be single handed. Or double handed with a crew of either sex.

In order to get some idea of numbers, could you please let me know if you are interested in either, or both of the above.  Then I can put you on the list.

Once the level of interest has been gauged, detail and dates will follow.

Heave – Ho!

Many hands make light work           (Photo by Jen Bayford)

Unfortunately the Christmas Pudding Race was abandoned due to weather conditions, some of the squalls that came through would have flattened the fleet.

However the dry-suited sailors put themselves and their muscles to good use, by entering the very cold waters to retrieve the pontoon and re-position it.    Well done guy’s.

They soon warmed up again with pies and punch in the club house. we had about 25 members in attendance. All sat around and reminisced their sailing year.

As for the puddings, we put every ones name in a hat to draw.  The lucky recipients were     :-  Joe Wigley,  Malcolm Molineaux and  Sue Weston.

This brings us to the end of another sailing season and Durleigh Committee would like to wish you all a

 Very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Don’t forget to put your names down on the board in the clubhouse if you are sailing the Icicle Series.

Lynn Harland,  Sailing secretary.
