Galley Swap

******* Galley Swap required : This weekend *********** : Sunday 22nd September

Is anyone able to swap their galley duty to cover the galley this weekend please. Wendy Jones who was due to cover has badly broken her arm and obviously cant do her duty. If you could help please let me know. I will put a swap required on Dutyman.

Once again we are organising the end of season event for cadets and we are keeping the same format as last year where everyone chips in and brings along some party food for the evening. We have allocated some requirements already to the parents who were at cadets last week but we still have some food that needs covering. If you haven’t been already been allocated some food to bring and will be attending could you let me know please.

We still need people to bring the following

Cheese & pineapple
Sandwiches (various) or filled finger rolls.

If you can let me know what you can bring.

Deadline for the October issue of Ebb and Flow – this is Friday, 27 September 2013

As usual, we need your input to make Ebb and Flow interesting so please let us know all about your sailing adventures and activities over the summer. If you are writing an article (and please do), a few photos if you have them help to make it even more interesting (and make it easier to adjust it to fit in the space available).

I’m sure you must have some sailing thoughts or experiences that we can all learn from or enjoy. Cruising tips – or trips, race training ideas, cooking in confined quarters, whether you achieved your plans and ambitions for the summer, what made you want to get afloat in the first place. Sailing trivia, book reviews, your favourite nautical film or poem? Would you recommend your type of boat to others and why? Contributions are welcomed for our next issue. Don’t be shy, start to write!

If you have an idea and aren’t too sure, get in touch.
