Notice Board

Pre-season Working Bee

The club would like to advise all members that we are holding a working bee at the club on Sunday 26th August, 2018 commencing at 1030hrs. We need to do a general tidy up and prepare for the new season. We will be rigging the new Quest Training Boats and it would excellent if the Assistant Coaches could attend to learn some new rigging skills. If we get a good roll up we should be finished by about 2pm at the very latest  - one hour of your time is all we need. Hope to see you then.
