Caribbean Theme BBQ Night Success
The Caribbean Evening was another outstanding success. There were a large number of garlands in evidence, along with some very tasty rum punch and a delicious BBQ. A big thank you to everyone who helped to make it such a great event, whether you were cooking, serving, behind the bar, washing up or clearing up in the morning.

This Week: The Laser Thursday Pursuit Races are in season, starting this week - we have the long summer evenings, we have the competitors, all we need is the breeze. The pursuit times have all been calculated based on this year's results so everyone has a chance of glory with the staggered start. These races are always fun for the participants and interesting to watch.
Last Week: Sunday was a great day for sailing with a good North Easterly breeze providing challenging race conditions out in Seaton Bay and a perfect platform for the Sailing School and all the other dinghies enjoying the sunshine in Beer Bay.
A big thank you to Mike R and John B for their lastminute.com efforts in White Eagle and to Angela C for the scrumptious lunch. Congratulations to Mark 'Cowboy' S and Mike 'VC' T for their trophy winning exploits in the Spring Series - Well Sailed Chaps - it's also no coincidence that they are the most consistent members of the fleet in terms of attendance - You've got to be in it to win it !
Sunday Morning Sailing and 'Apres' Lunch The clubhouse terrace is a fine viewing platform and the Race Hut crew are always open to the offer of a coffee. You are also very welcome to join us for a late 'apres sail' lunch around 1.30pm Thursday and Monday Evenings in the Clubhouse Bar The bar is open for a welcome sundowner. There is also hot food on offer - come down and see what's going on.
Beer Sailing School - RYA Accredited The Sailing School is now officially accredited by the RYA. It has been a long and arduous process with many 'hoops' to negotiate - Well Done Alan and Tony.
If you are interested in learning to sail or getting a 'refresher' get in touch with Alan. He will shortly also be offering courses in powerboat ... watch this space Volunteers to help Alan and Tony with boat winching, derigging and packing away would be very much appreciated.
Winch Volunteers There's no better sight for for the patrol boat crew than to see some willing volunteers waiting to help 'White Eagle' safely back to it's berth on the beach
Sailing Club Winches The Sailing Club winches are there to make life easier for everyone to go sailing. If you need some advice or guidance on how to use them safely please get in touch. We are available to help.
Wednesday Morning Coffee Club in the Clubhouse So much better than 'Costa' and the view is magnificent - catch up for a 'social' coffee with other club members

Sailing is great fun, Apres Sail is very sociable Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped out so far out in the bay, in the Race Hut and in the clubhouse. We can't go sailing without you. Don't be shy, if you're interested in sailing or helping, don't wait to be asked, just come down to the clubhouse and get involved, in the clubhouse, in the Race Hut, or on the water.
