River Conditions

Wensday 27 June there is a Mid Summer Cruise to The Weir Hotel for a pub supper. The plan is to sail or motor up through Sunbury Lock for a meal, returning around dusk to AQSC for a night cap. Members can travel by any means including canoes, row boats, dinghies, power boats or cars; boats leave at 18:00. Naturally the most fun is the mix of craft on the river and both our patrol boats, Aquarius and Tern, will be going. To book a place in them use the form in the bar or contact Richard Cannon (01932 786636). Note: Anyone planning to come by road should be aware that the Weir Hotel stops taking food orders at 9:00pm.


Monday 16 July The next committee meeting is at 19:30 at the club.

Dutyman dutylist

21 February The Bar, Sailing and other duties have been entered in to Dutyman for 2018. You should receive an email from Dutyman telling you that you have new duties; there is a personal link to Dutyman in the email that will log you in. Any months and days that you have a duty are highlighted with a red underline, a red pointer, or red letters depending on the view. Please could you confirm your duties and arrange a swap, using Dutyman, for any you can't do as soon as possible. If subsequently you find you can't do a duty you can inform Dutyman at any time and arrange a swap.

Personal Items

And now a word from our sponsors (i.e. The AQSC Management Committee). Please remove all personal items from the changing rooms at the end of the sailing day. The changing rooms are NOT storage areas and items left there WILL be disposed of. You have been warned!

Also there is far to much in the store room; it is not for storage of personal items that are seldom used and all items left there MUST be identified with the owner name or sail number else it may be disposed of.
