On Saturday 27 October the last working party of the year will be at AQSC starting at 10:30 ‘ish. Nigel no doubt will have a list of jobs to be done and Diana will be organising coffee and a late lunch for the workers. Your turnout would be greatly appreciated. Nothing too strenuous but you are advised to wear old clothes and gloves.

Wednesday 31 October Halloween It’s that time of the year again! Our regular Wednesday evening in the AQSC bar from 19:30 will have a suitable theme. Nibbles and drinks plus if you have a Halloween costume stashed away, not worn in years, now’s the time. Get dressed up and come on down. Q. Why do demons and ghouls hang out together? A. Because demons are a ghouls best friend! Yes, it’s going to be that kind of night. See you there!

 Monday 19 November The next committee meeting is at 19:30 at the club.


On 13 October 26 members attended an Oktoberfest evening having a German theme; story

14 October The slumboat problem opposite us is receiving local publicity. The LOSRA (Lower Sunbury Residents Association) Autumn Newsletter has a story on Page 4. The October issue of Sunbury Matters has a story on page 20; click in the page bar to display page 20, in the zoom bar to make it readable and drag the page to display the story.

10 October At last the EA (Environment Agency has removed 6 sunken boats opposite us; it is a big improvement, now we need the illegal moorers to be removed. On 11 October Richard Cannon and Rodger Wheeler went to a RUG 8 (River Users Group) meeting. The EA confirmed that they don’t own the tow path.

On 28 August There was a very good AQSC representation at the Service of Thanksgiving for the Life of George Bray; about 34 members attended.

26Aug18 Unfortunately the weather forcast for the bank holiday fun sailing was correct; cold with heavy rain from 11:00; there were many members at the club but it wasn't going to be fun and no one wanted to sail. Pat provided the usual burgers for lunch and Jean Maracchi delicious home made cakes for tea.

Dutyman dutylist

21 February The Bar, Sailing and other duties have been entered in to Dutyman for 2018. You should receive an email from Dutyman telling you that you have new duties; there is a personal link to Dutyman in the email that will log you in. Any months and days that you have a duty are highlighted with a red underline, a red pointer, or red letters depending on the view. Please could you confirm your duties and arrange a swap, using Dutyman, for any you can't do as soon as possible. If subsequently you find you can't do a duty you can inform Dutyman at any time and arrange a swap.

11 August The weather forecast for the evening was for rain. Fortunately by the time the patrol boat left for the Sunbury regatta fireworks the rain had stopped; members had been put off and only 4 went.  

Wednesday 8 August was very active at AQSC; 6 or 7 boats sailing in a reasonble wind. In the evening there were 25 members calibrating Eric Bridgewater’s life; two gateau had been donated by his family.  

On Saturday 28 July there was an excellent hog roast; story.

On Sunday 1 July an E to NE 10 to 15 mph wind gave good sailing so the 15:30 race sailed up stream to Sunbury for the Cundy Long Distace race Trophy concurrent with the Summer 3 race. It was a good decision and it was a very enjoyable sail for the 7 bpats.

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.
