Sunday 11 November With heavy rain overnight the water was level with the down stream slipway. The Aquarius patrol boat has been leaking so the opportunity was taken to pull it out of the water with the help of a chain block.

Saturday 10 November Annual Dinner was a sell out. The meal was excellent, one of the best we have had.

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

Wednesday 31 October Thanks to Nigel for organising the free nibbles for Halloween.

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 calbrating 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.
