Weather Update: REGATTA Fleet Cancelled

Unfortunately the Burghfield REGATTA fleet event will now be cancelled tomorrow (6th February 2016) due to the continuing forecast being at the top end of Optimist wind range. Our intention is to refund regatta fleet sailors who have paid minus a small administration fee to cover costs and will notify sailors on the most efficient way to do this.

The MAIN fleet event will go ahead as planned, subject to a review throughout the day.

For more information regarding this decision please see the Event Website


Volunteer Request

As we move into the new year and work through the membership renewals, we do have a few volunteer requests for the early part of the year.

Hopefully, the "Volunteer Required" duties on Dutyman are now swappable (the swap request will come to the office). Please only request to swap to a "Volunteer Required" duty which is BEFORE your allocated duty.

If you have not yet been allocated a duty for 2016, and are available for a vacant duty please let us know and we will allocate this to you as a rostered duty for the year.
