Well the Easter regatta was exciting, until it became too exciting! The HRO took the decision that the winds were too strong and the number of boats blowing over was against the spirit of the covid guidelines. Well done to Henry, who as he won Day 1 of the regatta also won the overall regatta.
The sailing and SUPing seasons will now get underway in earnest with tonights racing starting the Wednesday A race series.
A local photographer (Pauls Photography) took the image above, and a fair few others. Check them out at the following link:
A massive thank you to Mike, Lucas and Natalie Barrow. After seeing the transformation of the coffee shop area the committee decided to follow the colour themes through the ground floor. Mike, Lucas and Natalie have spent the bulk of the last two days filling, sanding and painting the walls. And that was after Mike coming off a late shift and on call! Jane, Mike and Lucas and Natalie are coming back tomorrow to finish the job. The downstairs will look very smart. What I think we need now is a member photographer to take some Sailing and SUP pictures and we can update some of our photograps to compliment the more historic images we have. I feel a competition coming on!!
A select crew got together safely to pressure wash and clean up the topper fleet in preparation for the next Jybaz on Saturday. Tricia, Ralph, Kieran and others (I was busy inside) were joined by a new member Adrian and Poppy. I'm sure Ade and his family will be happy at the club and we'll be happy to have him (he's a PB2)! 🤣
P.S. The Galley Coffee Shop opens on Tuesday 13th April. You can follow us on Facebook by searching for "The Galley Coffee Shop" or sign up at www.thegalleygroup.com. Again, thanks to everyone who has helped in the transformation of the area. Fingers crossed it's a success.
