Tidal Diamond 336 – Bar Opening, Cadets, Locks Regatta, Torbay Week

Tidal Diamond No. 336

Bar Opening

It is with regret that I have to inform you that due to lack of volunteers the galley will now be closed until Sunday 1st September.

As you know TSC is a self help club and the galley and bar always struggle to get enough volunteers to cover all of the standard opening times.

If you would like to gain some maintenance hours the galley and bar always need volunteers.

The galley and bar duties are a great way for new members to meet people and also gain maintenance hours.

It’s a great shame when these two core club facilities have to remain closed especially when there are enough members in the club who could cover them.

If you would like to volunteer for galley or bar (or galley and bar) please contact

Steve Francis, steve / 07710 941241 for galley duties or

Cadets cancellations

Regretfully we need to cancel cadets on 14 august and cadet race 6 which was scheduled for that night. This is because due to holidays and work commitments we have nobody available to lead the session. Apologies for this. Normal service will be resumed on 22nd august.

Locks SC Regatta

Locks SC is staging its 2013 Regatta this coming weekend. If you are intending to compete you should ensure you are sailing off our slipway no later than 1pm on Saturday (10th August) and 1:30pm on Sunday (11th August). On Saturday there is a briefing in Locks’ clubhouse at 1:30pm, when you can sign on although our patrol boat will register you before departure, and later with Locks, using a TSC sign-on sheet if you seek them out and request this.

The start on Sunday is at 2:30pm but you are advised to land and visit Locks clubhouse beforehand, where the course(s) will be available.
