*** 50% off Specials Board on Thursday evenings***
Open for business……
We are open for business, despite the flag pole having been lowered to be cleaned and painted. Our thanks to the ‘mast team’ for taking this down, especially to Peter Visick and Craig, our Bosun. We hope that the task of lifting it back into position is not too tricky!
The Club re-opened on Wednesday 18th January with the regular keep fit ladies enjoying their class in the morning and a presentation from the RNSA Chair, Richard Farrington, in the evening. Weekly bridge has also resumed on Thursdays at 2pm.
January and February are quite busy with a variety of talks, walks and the usual quiz nights, as well as film nights on Fridays when there is nothing else scheduled. If you are feeling active, why not join in with the next Sunday walk on 29 January and then enjoy a roast lunch at the Club afterwards?
Of course, the very popular 50% off from the specials board will return on Thursday evenings.
We look forward to welcoming familiar faces and also our new members in 2017.
All about sails
Talk: Friday 10 February at 8pm
Nick Head manager of SKB Sails in Penryn will be giving us an insight into the business. He started work in the Sail Loft as an apprentice and ended up taking over the reins! This is sure to be an interesting evening and there is a lot more to it than just sails! Lots of tips and advice.
The following afternoon (Saturday 11 February) there will be a visit to the Sail Loft. Come along and learn moreâ€¦â€¦.
A snapshot of farming in the 1990s
Talk – Friday,17 February at 8pm
A move away from nautical matters – John Head’s talk is already proving very popular so you need to get your name down quickly if you wish to attend. John is 3 times AZAB competitor and fourth generation local veterinary surgeon will give a very amusing recollection of the Farming Community in Cornwall. This will be an illustrated talk with Black and White photos taken over the years. Any of you who know John will understand that this will be a guaranteed fun evening!
As previously advised there will be a small charge of Â£2.50 per person for talks to help offset the cost of speakers. The amount may be paid on the night at the bar. To those of you who may not have been before – food is served from 6.30pm with all talks commencing at 8pm. If you prefer to just come along for a drink and the talk that is fine. The lists for talks are up in the bar or you may contact Karen in the office to add your name.
Truro Tracks & Trails – Sunday Walk – 29 January
Walk: 1000 Lunch at RCYC: 1300
A walk of contrasts around Truro, following urban trails over and under the railway, along leats and the riverside, then on into countryside for the return along the trackbed of the Newham Branch line (closed in November 1971) back to the starting point, near Truro Station. Mostly level or gentle inclines on a walk of urban and rural contrasts, about 4 miles. The first part is on paved paths and roads through the city (dogs definitely on leads, and NO stopping to shop!) but the Newham section can be quite muddy.
Travelling to Truro on the A39, turn left at the top of Arch Hill onto the A390, then right at the first roundabout down Station Road. Park on this road opposite the old County Hall (before the station). There are on-road parking areas marked on the station side of the road, and on Sundays this includes unrestricted parking in residents’ parking zones. There is also a temporary pay and display car park signposted behind the County Hall. Meet at 10.00 on Station Road at the entrance to the footbridge across the railway, opposite the end of Avondale Road.
