Request from the Mooring Master Mike Urand

We have a new suppler of galvanised chain for this year so hopefully the rust problem of the last couple of years will not be quite so bad.  If you have chain at the moment and would like a rope mooring strop instead, or have a strop and would rather have chain, then please email me; mike@polo8t.plus.com

Or call me for advice on 02380843654 if you are not sure what to have.  If you want the same as last year, there is no need to contact me, and you should get the same as last season.


Training Courses Update

The Day Skipper course is about half way through with everyone just getting back to it after the Christmas break.  The trainer has the availability to run a second course in conjunction with Eling Sailing club on weekends at the end of February and during March.   Please let me know if you are interested.
First Aid Course. and Sea Survival Course, I have put a list up in the lobby for these courses, please add you name if you are interested and I will organise them.  The Sea Survival course is held in a local swimming pool and is well worth doing to see how difficult it is to get into a life raft as well as lots of information about survival at sea.
VHF Radio Course, Saturday 23rd February , please add you name to the list in the lobby if you are interested.
Many thanks Julie email training@hythesailingclub.co.uk
