As we are approaching the end of the sailing season at Paxton Lakes I'd just like to bring a few dates to your attention:
  • Boxing Day Race
    A single race starting at 11.00 on the 26th December.
    Great opportunity to get the body moving again after the excesses of Christmas.
  • Work Parties
    13th January
    27th January
    10th February

    The old adage that many hands make light work was never truer than on a work party day. We always need all the help we can get to spruce up the club and clear away the willows ready for the coming season. Please bring gardening tools to cut back bushes.
  • AGM
    The Annual General Meeting will be held at 2 pm on January 13th, after the first work party. You'll get a more formal notice in with your membership renewal form.
On another tack:
Can I remind you to check that your boats are securely tied down for the winter. When I last walked round the dinghy park there were a surprising number of boats that had not a single line holding them down. Trust me, throwing an old tyre over the handles of the launching trolley will not keep the boat down when the winds get up!
 
Looking forward to seeing you all in the coming season.
