Clubhouse Refurbishment & Gig Racing

Huge immprovenents tio the clubhouse now just completed so a huge thank you to those who gave their time and expertise to complete the work.

Things are moving forward on creating a Gig Racing Section and bids are being prepared for grants to purchase our own gig.

Plans are also being discussed to attract young members with dinghy sailing 'tasters'.

Thses topics have also highlighted the need to update our safety policy, especially for Gig Racing activities and add a new 'Safeguarding' document to cover working with young people. These can be viewed here for  Safety, and here for Safeguarding,  members are encouraged to read them. 

The first phase of the work on the wharf was completed just before Christmas and our thanks to HPC and Hochtief for minimising the disruptiuon to the club and members.

 

 

Empty PillThe Pill

Looking rather empty at the moment.

This is pending Hinkley Point 'C' (HPC) carrying out some test drilling right in the entrance. The boats usually moored here have been temporarily relocated elsewhere, mostly Watchet Marina. 

Work started 30 August and the drill platform arrives in a couple of weeks. The contractors will put their own lock on the gate during this time to control access whilst they are working. 

BBQ

The Club BBQ on Sunday, 3rd September at the Boat Club was well attended despite the poor weather.
