Tidal Diamond No. 240 – Cruiser Relaunch Safety Briefing,

Tidal Diamond No. 240

Cruiser Relaunch Safety Briefing
Please come along to the club house for 8pm on Wednesday 28st March for the pre-launch safety briefing. There will be a reminder about the safety aspects of the launch weekend and an opportunity for you to ask any questions. We really need to increase the pool of volunteers for the weekend and this is your chance to get involved. It would be great to see some new faces but the regulars need to be there just as much. Give us your feedback and ideas to improve the weekend. Thanks in advance. George Thomson – Bosun

Car Parking
There have been a number of occasions where cars have been parked opposite the compound gates, and inside the compound.
Please draw your attention to the club Byelaw 8 (j) as highlighted below and have consideration for others who require access to the compound. Space is very restricted, especially in the winter lay up period when a lot of work goes into ensuring the dinghy sailors still have access to get in and out of their allotted spaces.
Byelaw 8(J)
Cars must be parked, whenever possible, in the area provided for club parking. Cars may be parked in the Tender area of the compound but must not impede the use of the compound by other members. Cars are not permitted to enter the sailing dinghy area of the compound.

The cruise will be a relaxed sail and depending on the conditions, we may be able to sail through the North Binness Channel. We will stop en route for a snack so please provision well and if the weather is really good we may stop for an ice cream so bring some money. An anchor is useful though not essential.
