On 31 March conditions were excellent for the start of the new season. As forecast there was E to NE 10 to 15 mph wind. There was excellent challenging sailing; there were 5 capsizes.

On 16 March the weather forecast was terrible for the first work Party of the year; some members queried if it would take place. It is usually a mistake to change arrangements because of expected conditions; they were better than forecast and much was achieved; story.

On 02 March the British theme Quiz by Colin was in a variety of of interesting sections. The lovely supper prepared by Diana, Deborah and helpers was fitted between the quiz sections.

On Tuesday 1 January 2019 There was an excellent start to the year, warm, dry with 5 to 12 mph NW wind. Sailing was much better than was expected. There were 2 races in the morning and one after lunch. Six boats sailed and there were 20 members at the club to enjoy jacket potatoes and various fillings followed by fruit crumble; many thanks to Nigel for the delicious food.

Most people aren’t aware of the dangers of cold water shock. These RYA and RNLI stories highlight the dangers, I suggest you have a look.

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.
