Bits and Pieces - Mike Hendra

So here we are in the Spring of 2013 far later in life than many of us expected. Sadly just as well 'cos there don't seem to be too many youths what wanna dip their bums in the chilly Thames.

Virtual sailing is controlled by electricity not the wind so far more civilised. All jokes aside we do need everyone's help in swelling the youth end of the club's membership so frogmarch your kids and grand kids to the club.

In the last Mainsheet we did ask members to spruce up their boats so as to improve our image. Thank you to those who have done so and a nudge to those who have languished in front of the winter fire. Please people let your boat gleam in 2013.

On the image front, please remember to keep your gear in the respective change areas and keep the lounge free of clothing, equipment etc. Equipment left in the changing rooms can also have a detrimental effect on the Club's image and aroma so should be taken home at the end of the day rather than left wet in the change room.

Sadie the cleaning lady died of a wet towel incubated fungus infection so please members keep the change areas clean and free from fermentation.
