Tidal Diamond No. 390
Deadline for the next issue of Ebb & Flow – Monday, 2 June 2014
Get into print!
As usual, we need your input to make Ebb and Flow interesting so please let us know all about your sailing adventures and activities. 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).
We can all learn from the nautical experiences of others so let’s hear about your sailing successes and failures – don’t be embarrassed, pseudonyms can be used if you prefer! So cruising tips – or trips, race training ideas, your favourite type of dinghy or cruiser, cooking in confined quarters – all contributions gratefully received.
Let us know about your sailing experiences so far this year and what you’re planning for the rest of the summer. What made you want to get afloat in the first place. Sailing trivia, most useful piece of kit, book reviews, your favourite nautical film or poem?
Sailing stories or cartoons? Don’t be shy, start to write!
If you have an idea, please get in touch and send your contributions to ebbnflow

Galley Closed Until November 2014
This is not the sort of announcement I feel pleased about sending out but unfortunately it is the case that unless we have volunteers to do Sunday galley duties then it will remain closed throughout the year, reopening at the end of November for 4 weeks on the run up to Christmas.
Despite many requests for volunteers I have had absolutely no response which is disappointing.
If you are looking for duties to cover all or some of your maintenance hours then please let me know.
We can run galley familiarisation sessions on request.
Family Fun day – Saturday 14th June, 11am
Come and join in with the Family Fun day and invite your friends and family or even your next door neighbours. The aim of this event (as well as having fun) is to promote the club and to entice potential new members.
The day will include a number of water and land based activities for all ages and abilities.
Come with gear prepared to get wet! Non member… friends are welcome.
We have buoyancy aids for children (but they will need their own suitable water side clothing). Patrol boats will be on the water. Opportunity for friends to have a go at sailing (close to the club house). Bring kayaks if you have them for kayak races. Bring inflatables for a mess about.
We have events planned even if the weather is not suitable for going on the water so please make the date in your diary now.
There will BBQ food available for purchase but feel free to being a picnic if you want.
If you need any more info regarding plans for the day or if you can give some time on the day to help out please contact.
