Gardening Working Party
Wednesday, 21 June at 9.30am
Eleanor and Rachel have planted up the tubs with summer bedding and a watering rota is in place to see us through the summer months. Thank you to all those who are helping out. The bank really does need some attention and the next Working Party will take place on Wednesday 21 June so please put this date in your diaries. We could do with a couple of men to help clear some of the overgrown shrubs and there is plenty of weeding around the building to be done. If you havenâ€™t taken part before just come along and lend a hand. You donâ€™t have to be gardeners just enthusiastic. Dress of the day â€“ sensible footwear and gloves and a few hand tools if you have them too. Coffee is provided and even an hour of your time would be appreciated.
Itchenor Sailing Club Sunbeam Visit
Nigel Glanville, Roger Ford, Ray Stedman and Lyulph Hesling went up to Itchenor for the weekend of 9th June, and had a good weekend of three races on Saturday and one on Sunday, on lovely sunny breezy summerâ€™s days, being told where to go (in the nicest possible way) by the local Sunbeamers. This means either keeping half a mile off the beach (the mud) or scraping along it (the sand) depending where you happen to be, with lots of frantic tacking, spinnaker handling and shouting out the depth (10 foot, 6 foot, 5 foot; TACK!). The turning mark at the bar in the entrance was interesting, with about four knots of cross current and a few yards from the surf breaking on the bar. One gets better at getting round the mark with practice! Roger spent most of the race doing turns and saying sorry, but still managed a good place.
We were all given an excellent meal at the Anchor Bleu in Bosham, and brought home some glassware. We are hoping the Itchenor fleet will visit Falmouth soon.
