Dear WMYC members,
Just to let you know that a Working Party day is planned for Saturday 20th May, and members are invited to attend and help with maintenance of the clubhouse, premises and equipment. Some of the tasks identified so far are:-
Paint the JCB
Stain the clubhouse decking
Refurbish the noticeboard facing the lane
Fix the padlocks on the bottom gates and trim the thorn hedge
Improve the yard surface with road planings
Paint the outside of the clubhouse
There is plenty to do, so please come along and help if you can!

The crane in day was a triumph. We had the perfect weather – blue sky, sun, sea, and a blooming big crane.
All boats went in the water according to plan.
Club members played their part like in a big orchestra. Our crane-in conductor was Mike Morris — Wardley’s own version of ‘Sir Simon Rattle’ .
But instead of welding a baton, he dazzled on-lookers with a stream of two fingered gestures towards the sharp eye of a crane driver who had boats hopping off the hard, flying into the air, and splashing back into the water with perfect precision.
Other members played their part too, organised into gangs, they hopped on and off boats, fitted and released strops, hooked and unhooked boats, and with long ropes and a man on each corner, guided them safely to their designated berths.
Thanks also goes to the ladies who with smiles and good humour served delicious sustenance in the form of tea, coffee, and bacon butties.
All in all it was a great day, please see the photos below.

Crane-In dates rely on the combination of spring tides and good weather.
The crane is planned for 26th April, so let’s hope for good weather and low winds. Crane-In must start 9.00am. 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.
