**** CORONAVIRUS ******

(revised 23.03.21)

As you will hopefully have heard by email, sailing at County Hall will be resumed on Sunday April 4th. Members must use the booking form to book a sailing time slot. We are hopeful that sailing will resume at Lakeside soon. Members will be informed by email when this is the case.


SPRING NEWSLETTER
Young Alan Gregory has published his Spring Newsletter.  You can read it here.
Many thanks to Alan for another bumper edition, and to contributors Andrea Povey, Nigel Dale,
Roger Atkins, Mike Fenton and Tony Draper.

CLUB 500 RACING
A group of club members led by Pete Thornton and Tony Draper have decided to buy and build
'Club 500' power boats.  Club 500 boat kits are available relatively cheaply, and they are simple and easy to build from a set of vac-formed plastic parts.  Currently eleven members have expressed interest in the project, and boat construction is in full swing. We've even seen some boats being tested; they look pretty impressive!  There's a good intro to Club 500 boats here.

Events for 2020

Keep an eye on this section, it will grow as the weeks pass by, and more information will be provided about each event.

Key to entries:
Entries in normal text are standard club meetings.
Entries in green italics are meetings to which we have been invited as guests, but do not have a club stand.
Entries preceded by this 'club' symbol are meetings at which we have a manned club stand.

The following events may take place depending on the coronovirus restrictions in force at the time:

Club A.G.M.
As you are aware the club 2020 AGM was postponed from November and provisionally rescheduled for April 2021. However under the present regulations holding a normal AGM is still not possible and an online option is not considered appropriate. Therefore the committee has decided that it is best to postpone the AGM until full restrictions are lifted which at the moment is June 21st. Memberships will remain in place until the AGM when subscriptions will be reviewed.
