Hard @ Work

November 21, 2009

If you've been in or out of the creek lately you've no doubt had to negotiate your way past the dredge which has been hard at work for most of the week. On Saturday the work was taking place a short distance inside the entrance, creating short traffic jams for those boats on the move. It can be said without doubt that we're all looking forward to "bump-free" use of the entrance from now on.

A chart has been received during the week showing the depth of water since the dredging.

If ya want my Opinion !

November 08, 2009
  Well there was a lot going on at the club over the weekend with social events, racing and general boating in the great weather. Over the next few days we'll cover most things here - but one of the more interesting shots I got was of the "committee" on Sunday morning, gathered to give Bob a bit of advice as he prepared to strip an engine down for repairs. I'm sure he collected some great tips for the job !  

Kids Jackets

November 06, 2009


The Club is on the lookout for Kids jackets.

If you have a life jacket suitable for children that you no longer have any use for, Des would like to hear from you. With the recent increase in the number of children around the Island it's been decided that having some loan jackets available at the club would be a good idea. So get in touch with Des if you think you can help.
