Notes from the Sailing Committee….

From our Fleet Captain!!!

Last night I attended the Datchet Sailing Club, Sailing committee meeting please see below my notes regarding anything of interest for the Flying Fifteen fleet.  Please put the Event dates in your diary

  • The club has reminded the rescue boats to keep out of the way of starting boats and the club will remind the rescue boats in the future
  • On the Datchet water show is 28th and 29th April. Are you available to demo sail or help out?  It’s a great way to get more members.  In addition please take promotional leaflets when at the club on Sunday and get the flyers out to where you work etc.      Please go onto the club website for more info and volunteer
  • Forthcoming events:- Jubilee Weekend , 2nd June. Plans to have an event this weekend more details to    follow (some of the 15 fleet will be at the southern championships)

    – June 24th will be the summer regatta on the Sunday only

    – 29th 30th September Will be the club championships – please put in your diaries

    – Christmas lunch / pudding race will be on the 16th Dec.

  • A discussion regarding new members and getting them racing was raised (by the FF Fleet). The club is already doing this with a number of new sailors already crewing for club members. An idea for crew notice board area to put names up was suggested and on the website  Sam has taken as an action.
  • The club agreed that the flying fifteens can move the fenders from the old pontoon to the new one. Mike. (Can you action?)Don’t forget the clocks change this weekend. :-))  Its going to be a hot one see you Sunday
