What's Been Going On




The Commodore writes

This year’s sailing season is drawing to a close but there is still time to get on the water and enjoy probably the best wind conditions throughout October. Alas this year’s Bosun open event has been cancelled due to dredging works which is a real shame.

We have a working party coming up in November and will need to do a major tidy of the reach so please do come along, lunch will be provided..

There has been some theft of dinghies in the area, none at Aquarius but please do make sure that yours is secure, likewise with wet berths.

The main entry gate, the one with the combination lock, MUST be kept closed and locked after entry to the grounds, it is a stipulation from Thames water. Fly tipping in the past has caused lots of problems.


Although we have a set of club rules and regulations, I can already hear the yawns, there is need for a gentle reminder regarding some of them. It is imperative that anyone who sails/helms any club boat MUST wear a buoyancy aid! Also when on patrol boat duty it is necessary that 2 people are in the boat, one to helm and one to aid recovery. The patrol boat should remain at the bank until needed.

The kitchen refurb is well under way and Bodgit and Co have been on double time and are doing a fantastic job to the point of missing time on the water. Please feel free to pat them on the back when passing.

Great Sailing,

Tony Hopkins
