Commodores’s Report - Tony Hopkins

Well the Sailing season for us is nearly over this year but there are still a lot of social activities planned leading up to Christmas. The reach has had its first Autumn working party, I say first because we plan a second to sort out the trailer park which is now jammed full with trailers and more than a few dinghies, cruisers and catamarans, it is now difficult to retrieve trailers, also the drive and car park require de-weeding. If you have an old trailer in the trailer park that is no longer used please dispose of it or let me know as someone else maybe in need of a trailer.

With the nights drawing in it means the reach is in darkness for longer and we have had more than our share of unwanted visitors along the bank and around the clubhouse, if you have a wet berth please do make sure it is chained and padlocked to the bank and there are no valuables on board!

Also that dinghies are secured and not left sailable! So please do remove centre boards, rudders and tillers and sails if possible.

With the festive season rapidly closing in on us and the sailing season coming to an end (for Aquarius) thoughts tend to turn away from the club but there are always jobs need doing on dinghies, its best to get those repairs done sooner rather than remember when afloat next season and you are left floundering downstream.

Don’t forget to lookout for the Aquarius social activities that tend to happen between now and next season. Weather permitting, as usual, the sailing season will be extended as long as possible.
