News for August 2009
Eyes around the Bay
|Our Club offers pretty good Webcam coverage for both members and the public via our Eye in the Sky. Elsewhere around the bay there are also a number of cameras in interesting spots. New links to a camera at Brighton and also at Docklands have been added to the existing addresses on the links page.||
|As reported earlier in the week, Andy has been hard at work at the end of each day with the annual maintenance task.|
||Club members joined a large group of family and friends to celebrate the life of Michael Oakley.|
|Andy's turn has come around for the annual Scrub-down and Anti-foul. On Saturday it was time to get things under way.|
|With a lot of advanced Weather Warnings out for the weekend it seems that for a number of members there wasn't much else for it but to get stuck into a couple of maintenance tasks. Graeme and David were caught hard at work.|
Trailer Sailer Treasures
|Paul has sent in a link to an interesting site. It's a library of Trailer Sailer details and photos complied online by John Crawford Marine in Queensland. I only had a brief look but came across a shot of this Sunmaid - in our Creek !
** An email from Rowan who says he's found a shot of his boat too. Never know what we'll find! **
Boat & Anglers Club
You may remember this shot taken by Gary's son earlier in the year.
Well the Mordi Boating & Angling Club took a shine to it and have asked if they can use it on the top page of their new Web site. The site contains quite a few shots of familiar locations along with other information about the club and it's activities. Really worth a look.
Peter Donaldson from Pains Wessex soon set us straight with a great lecture and demo on Handheld Marine Flare Safety.Read more
|Stage one of the engine replacement for Samantha took place late last week. Now it's a matter of some careful planning and a lot of elbow grease to complete the job.|
