It’s almost here !!!

It’s almost here. The weather is looking superb for eating and drinking and relaxing, but unfortunately NOT for sailing !!. Just a reminder that all are welcome on the Saturday night for a BBQ and a bar open until 01.00am. There is a raffle with some excellent prizes including tooth whitening, boat lift out and boat valets. Tickets will be available on both Friday and Saturday nights at the clubhouse. There will be the usual meals available tomorrow night prepared by Kay and drinks serves by Becci

Hopefully if “they” arrive there will be some “racing” after the lock gates close on the Saturday afternoon. Please visit the clubhouse Friday night or Saturday morning for more details

Jonathan will be giving his usual pre race briefing on both mornings (Sat and Sun) at the following times. If you are intending to race please turn up, I would seriously consider anybody who has the slightest inclination to test their sailing skills to take part in this event. It is a FUN event and not at all  foreboding. There will be hot food and a bar open after both races, what more of a reason do you need !!!

Briefing, clubhouse :-

Saturday 25th May  08:45

Sunday 26th May   09:30


2013 FHYC Regatta

Just a reminder about our forthcoming regatta on the Saturday and Sunday (25th + 26th May). At least there is a Bank Holiday the day after !! The bar will be open on both Friday and Saturday night with live entertainment on the Saturday night. Weather permitting there will be a BBQ. Alternatively if the weather is a touch inclement then an alternative menu will be provided. Fingers crossed for the sun !! Races will be held on both Saturday and Sunday and the winner presented with the trophy after the race Sunday. Meals will be available after both races and all welcome.

Hopefully we have some light hearted fun in the afternoon of Saturday. Details to be published very soon

Berth Holder’s Meeting-summary

We had a very successful meeting of berth holder’s at the clubhouse on Tuesday night, 30th April 2013. This was well attended with owners of more than 15 vessels berthed in Fleetwood Marina. The ABP representatives were Guy Lockwood (Harbour Master) and Peter Smith (Berthing Master). Chairing the meeting was the Commodore, Howard Hunter, and assisted by Vice Commodore, Brian Croston. The meeting encompassed a broad range of questions from litter in the Marina to the longevity of keeping the dock channel open and free from silting. The vast majority of these questions were answered in a logical and sympathetic way and the audience appreciated the views and actions that Guy has said he will endeavor to fulfil. As usual there were some points raised that were not within Guy’s control and he has promised to look into them and report back with answers. The meeting finished about 20:40 and quite a few members retired to the bar. The full account will be available in the next edition of the club magazine….Three Degrees West
