Lots of jobs completed in spite of a disappointing turnout!
THANK YOU to those members who turned up for the work party on August 8th. In spite of low numbers, the yard looks much tidier, thanks to the hard work of the members who helped:
Richard Anthony, Jack Tomlinson, Roger Walkington, Neil MacSween, Sandra Jepson (and Caitlin), Mike Smith, Dave Emmess. Tom Bradley, Bill Blenkinship, Pablo Barrs, John Bacon, John Gorse, Vic Matthews and Linda Matthews.
Well done and if your name isn’t here there will be plenty of jobs for next time.
Thanks to all for the suggestions as to how we mark 25 years of Wardleys Marine Yacht Club!
Plans are now taking shape, and all members will receive details and a personal invitation by email or post.
The outline plan is as follows:
A cruise will leave for Piel Island at around 11:15 on Saturday 29th. There will be a sign up list in the clubhouse for all interested in taking part, whether you have your own boat or not. The more the merrier!
The fleet will return on Sunday 30th, when HW is around 12:00.
Later that afternoon there will be a buffet meal, live entertainment and a BBQ later in the evening.
No doubt there will be many stories told of events over the last 25 years, and the Committee hope for a good turn out to share in the fun.
Crane in dates rely on the combination of spring tides and good weather – there are a series of possible days starting on Saturday 18th April through to Tuesday 21st April.
The crane is booked for Saturday 18th April, so let’s hope for good weather and low winds. HW 11:23 BST, 9.7m. Members involved need to be on site early!
The craning plan is on the Clubhouse notice board – if your details are incorrect or missing, please contact a Committee Member as soon as possible.
