This was the first of the club's winter activities aimed at maintaining contact between
the members over the closed season. Judging by Frank Rainsborough's write-up and
the accompanying photographs, published on the club's website, it was very well attended
and enjoyed by all. Well done to everybody who cooked the lunch and organised the

Members Please Note!
Our Sailing Sec. Richard Cannon has asked that all members ensure that they clearly
mark their sail numbers on their sails by the commencement of the 2009 season. He
has noted that several dinghies do not have any sail numbers at all and this makes
the OOD's job extremely difficult when trying to manage club racing.
Outer Road Gates
Thames Water have requested that the large outer green gates are closed when the
last member leaves the club. This is to deter or stop fly-tipping that started reoccurring
at the beginning of this year. This nuisance is very expensive to remove and Thames
Water would like to put more emphasis on prevention. Accordingly if you are last
out, day or night, please ensure that you close the outer road gates and also ensure
that the two inner gates are locked.
