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.

Future Events


19 November Although the scheduled sailing season has ended there will continue to be Sunday sailing while conditions are suitable; we haven't had prolonged heavy rain so the river doesn't have much current. The weather forecast is fine, 8C, 8 mph WNW wind so it should be suitable for sailing. I will be available for OOD, from 10:30, and Mike and Jean have volunteered for AOD, Patrol boat, BBQ and cakes.

The next committee meeting is on Monday 15 January 2018 at 7:30pm.

The AQSC Regatta on 17-18 June had the 2 hottest days of the year with very little wind. Liz Archer won the Regatta Trophy. The results are on line.

On Sunday 26 March conditions were perfect for the start of the 2017 sailing season; fine, warm and importantly an ideal 8 to 15 mph ENE wind, our best direction. Super for the practice starts of the 14:00 TFC event.
