The final Dinghy Cruise of the year…

This coming Saturday departing at 11:30 it’s the Langstone Sailing Club Cruise

Last week’s Round Hayling Cruise was a resounding success in perfect conditions, it would be great to increase the turnout for the final cruise. For those that haven’t been it’s a gentle three and a half miles up the harbour to partake of Langstone Sailing Club’s hospitality for an hour or so before returning to Tudor. I intend to give a very short brief for 11:00 and we depart at 11:30, as a club event it will be run under the auspices of the club’s “Adult Event Policy”.

We should arrive for about 12:30 and usually have lunch (don’t forget your sandwiches) on their very expansive decking. Their bar is also open (always an attraction) and if you intend to use it please take the side door noting that there a walkway to the right that stops us dripping on their carpet.

Just a final note, Langstone are having an RYA training day on our visit so please give all dinghies in the area a wide berth and don’t assume they will keep on a steady heading. It’s a great opportunity to see how one of our neighbouring clubs has achieved accreditation as an RYA training centre.

I look forward to seeing you all on the day.

Langstone SC Cruise, 15th August, 11:30

This weekend’s Langstone SC cruise is missing one patrol boat helm and 2 crew. If you can fill any of these positions, please volunteer directly on Dutyman or email me on JaniceBell.codd. The event will be cancelled unless we can fill at least one of these positions. We need all 3 positions filled for the event to be family friendly, as it is currently billed.
