Shackles & Chain

Thank you for the recent donations (left at the top of the slip, just inside the Club compound). Donated mooring chain is stripped-down on the bench. Recovered/donated shackles are kept in the Bosuns Cupboard. Decent chain, for the Club mooring, is stored in the Workshop, chain useable on the slip is kept outside, the remainder goes for scrap.

Get into Print!

That’s another year almost over. Rather than watching adverts for Christmas food and gifts, why not put pen to paper – or fingers to keyboard – and write a contribution for the winter issue of Ebb & Flow. Don’t wait until the new year to make a resolution to write for the magazine, let’s hear what you were doing out on the water in 2017. There must be some sailing stories out there that deserve a wider audience so please get in touch – anything sailing (or vaguely) sailing-related is welcome. Cadets and new members are encouraged to contribute as well as those who have been “floating around” for longer.

Please send your contributions to me at the address below.

Ebb & Flow Editor
