Tidal Diamond 497 – Renewals, Eb & Flow, England Coastal Path, Rugby

Tidal Diamond No. 497


Please be reminded that plaques have to be collected from the club this year.

If you have paid either by cheque or online and HAVE returned your boat forms then your plaques will be waiting for you to collect them in an envelope – all you have to do is sign for them.

If you have paid online but NOT yet returned your boat forms to the club, your plaques will be in an envelope ready for collection, but I need the boat forms first.

ADDITIONAL DATE not on the green form: Friday February 26th 20.00 – 22.00.

Please don’t leave it to that very last session otherwise we’re likely to have long queues!!

Many thanks

Ebb & Flow

Deadline for the next issue of Ebb & Flow – Monday, 7 March 2016

Get into print!

We’re all looking forward to another’s season’s sailing. If you’ve not been out this year why not at least start thinking and writing about it with an article for the spring issue of Ebb & Flow?

We need your input to make the next 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! Whether cruising or racing, why not let us have some information on your tips and or trips. What about some practical advice or suggestions for this summer. Why not write something on your favourite type of dinghy or cruiser, practical boating advice or cooking in confined quarters – all contributions gratefully received.

Other ideas for articles: what made you want to get afloat in the first place, what was your first sailing experience; what was your worst (and/or best) sailing experience; what boat would you like to own and why; sailing trivia; most useful piece of kit; book reviews; your favourite nautical film or poem?

Sailing stories, cartoons or photos are all welcome? Don’t be shy, start to write. Cast your mind adrift and put pen to paper – or fingers to keyboard.

If you have an idea, please get in touch and send your contributions to ebbnflow
