Sunday Racing as Usual This Weekend

I just wanted to drop you a note about this Sundays Racing

NORMAL RACING THIS SUNDAY

You may be aware that the Model Yacht Club are holding a round of the Marblehead championships this weekend at the club, this is a very prestigious event for them and attract a large number of competitors from all over the country .

 As a result, the Club will be very busy with a full carpark and part of the beech.

 That said, we will still be holding our normal racing in SaddleSal.

  • Can you please give a wide berth when passing the Model Yacht Race area ( in front of the headland )
  • Return your trolleys back to their births too so help avoid any trips and falls.
  • Car Parking will be at a premium, you may need to use the fisherman’s car park if there is no room.

 Finally, we need a Power Boat Driver for this and next Sunday, if you are able to assist then please drop me a line ?

Kind Regards

Racing Sec.

 

Oh what a night!

Just a quick one to say a huge thankyou to everyone who turned out for ‘Party in the Park’ last night.

That really was a superb evening – even the weather played ball after a couple of worrying thunderstorms.

With several campers – and a caravan – the beach was soon alive to the smell of firelighters and the whiff of flame-grilling burgers.

DJ Andy gave us the tunes to strut our funky stuff – and oh my, it was funky :-\

We counted around 60 people overall on the night, making this one of the most succesful PITP of recent years.

A special mention should go out to our team of young DI’s and friends, who were an absolute delight to have around. Guys, you were a lot of fun and a credit to yourselves – even if your tent building skills needed work at times :-)

So, a solstice evening down on the beach with great company, great music and great fun.

Thankyou all again and we’ll see you same place, same time next year :-)

Still need bits of kit?

There is still a good sized stock of used kit in the MPSC ‘Boat Jumble’ that you may have noticed in the clubhouse.

Much of the kit has only had fairly light use and is in good condition. This could be a great way for some of our newer members to grab themselves some kit at bargain prices.

There are a few wetsuits – from children to adults, sailing boots and a host of other bits and pieces.

Prices are usually on the item and John Salomonson can help you out if you’re interested in any items.

In addition, there are several items of boat chandlery that has recently been donated too. So, if you need that elusive block or length of rope, take a look and see what may be available.

Of course, we also hold stock of shackles and new rope as well – so no need to pay £3 postage for a £2.50 shackle!

Again, speak to Solly and he’ll get you sorted out.

Happy sailing :-)
