‘Yot Grot’ and Charity Coffee Morning
Tomorrow from 10am!
We have some interesting ‘yot grot’ including an outboard engine which will go to the highest bidder. Please do come along and support this event, have a cup of coffee and some cake and browse through the stalls which include RNLI, Neal’s Yard, Avon, gifts and books – never too early to start Christmas shopping! The pickles and jams always sell out fast so don’t miss out if you want some. If that’s not enough there will be a raffle and our Christmas prize draw board is now up…..we look forward to seeing you!
RYA Community Award for Neil Hopkins
The Commodore, Bob Collings and fellow Flag Officers are delighted to congratulate Neil Hopkins for being awarded a well deserved RYA Community Award (lifetime commitment). Neil, without being asked, works behind the scenes doing all those jobs no-one else wants to do. Neil is a regular Club Race Officer and quietly helps Julie, his wife, our Hon Sailing Secretary. He supports Friday racing at the Club sailing his Sunbeam and is an exemplary Club Volunteer.

Cruising Association Lobster Pots Campaign
Lobster Pots and Yacht Safety
In the spring of this year the Cruising Association launched a petition to make lobster pot markers safer for small craft. In two weeks they had 6,000 signatures and numerous reports of boats coming to grief by being caught up in lobster pot chains and ropes. The petition had then to be abandoned when the General Election was announced but was relaunched at the Southampton Boat Show in September.
They have had just over 5,300 signatures this time as those who signed the petition earlier thought their â€˜voteâ€™ would be carried through. This was not the case. The Governmentâ€™s petitions office shut down the earlier petition, losing all 6,000 signatures.
Link to website here with details of how to sign up for the petition.
Clubhouse opening times
A reminder that the Club is closed Sunday evenings, all day Monday and Tuesday evenings. On Tuesdays although the Clubhouse is open during the day there is no bar and catering service. (Coffee and tea available with honesty box). For full details of opening times please see visit the RCYC website.
